Will My Car Accident Report Stay on Record Forever?

A Lesson in Time

The amount of time an accident stays on your driving record depends on which state you reside in. For instance, an accident in California can remain on your record for 39 months, yet offenses like DUIs and hit-and-runs can stay for 13 years. However, in Texas, accidents are listed on your driving record for 15 years while intoxication- and alcohol-related accidents stay forever.
