The difference between a DUI pardon and a DUI Removal
In Canada, a DUI arrest is taken very seriously and it is uncommon to be found not guilty of a DUI. However, you should know that a DUI conviction is one of the most commonly pardoned criminal convictions in Canada. If you were convicted for your DUI arrest, then you need to apply for a Canada DUI pardon. On the other hand, if you were not convicted following a drunk driving arrest, then you should apply for a DUI removal and file destruction in order to remove the fingerprints and police information.
Once convicted of a DUI, Impaired Driving, Over 80, Care and Control of a Motor Vehicle, then you will have a criminal record forever until a pardon is granted. Once a pardon is granted for your DUI, it allows you to have criminal background checks for employment, travel and volunteering without worrying about your past coming back to haunt you.
Although a DUI pardon will restore your rights and privileges that were lost as a result of the DUI conviction, it will not automatically reinstate your driver’s license that may have been temporarily or permanently revoked as a result of the conviction.
If you believe you may want to eventually obtain a pardon for your DUI conviction, the first thing you need to do after being convicted is to pay the fine. For the purpose of your DUI pardon, the sentence being considered will almost regularly be the fine you received, provided there was no jail time involved. A key factor in obtaining a DUI pardon in Canada is whether you can provide evidence to the Parole Board of Canada of your rehabilitation and the payment of any fines that were issued as a result of the conviction. The fine must be paid in order to be eligible to apply for a DUI pardon or record suspension. It is important to note that if you are entering the US with more than one DUI charge on your record, you may be refused entry at the border.
