When it comes to driving while under the influence, state laws vary across the United States. In some states, this type of offense is referred to as a DUI, while in others it is referred to as a DWI. Contrary to popular belief, the definition of DUI and DWI includes any substance that can impair your judgment while driving including but not limited to over-the-counter drugs, illegal drugs, and prescription drugs. Being charged with a DUI or DWI can have a profound effect on your life in many ways, but with the help of properly licensed DUI/DWI programs, you can overcome the issues that led you down this path.

What is a DUI?

DUI stands for “driving under the influence,” which many people commonly assume refers to alcohol, but can refer to driving under the influence of any type of drugs. Legal or not, prescription or not, if there are drugs in your system while driving you can be charged with a DUI. Each state has its own specific description, but in general, a driver is charged with a DUI if there are drugs in their system and/or they have a BAC over the legal limit.

What is DWI?

A DWI on the other hand stands for driving while intoxicated. The definition of a DWI is very similar to a DUI and in some states, they are considered the same while in the other charges may vary based on the term. However, the bottom line is that both are serious offenses that need to be addressed. You don’t want either to show up on your driving record and both can impact your driver’s license. Completing DUI/DWI programs is the best way to prevent a second offense and treat the root problem. In some states, completing a diversion program may actually help repair your driving record.

How Can a DUI or DWI Impact Your Driver’s License?

In almost every state, a DUI or DWI charge will result in a suspended or revoked driver’s license. In some states, your license may be seized at the time of your accident whereas in other states you may be able to hold onto it until formally charged in court. A DUI or DWI will also dramatically impact your insurance premiums. Some insurance companies will drop you if you receive a DUI or DWI charge while others will require you to be bonded first.
