In what State are you located?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I am in Connecticut. My situation is that I was intoxicated, blacked out, crashed into a guardrail. I was on probation for 2 years, completed VIP, had license restored after 18 months. Is driving record automatically "clean" after 5 years or do I have to apply after 5 years?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Unfortunately I was unexpectedly called out of town on business and hence the
reason for the delay. Please accept my apologies. I have opted out of the
question so that you may be promptly assuisted by another expert. Thank you

Sorry for this confusion

If you were convicted, you cannot have your record expunged. That can only be done in Connecticut when you have been acquitted or the charges dismissed.

About the only way you can get a conviction expunged is to get a pardon from the Governor.


Go to this website to find the complete text of the Connecticut statute:
