Default how long does a dwi?

How far back do they check your driving record for a back ground check? I had a dwi 20 years ago, I was wondering if that is going to show up?

Also, I was wondering how far back do they check when they are doing a background check? 3 years, 7 years or more?

Unless you complete some sort of special program that gives you a clear record if completed sucessfully, most likely it will show forever. Even if your record is *supposedly* cleared, the record remains as "expunged" meaning it was cleared, but they are not supposed to reveal this to anyone other than law enforcement. Cleared records are only cleared for employment verification purposes and are not ever destroyed or thrown away. They remain on record with the arresting agency and courts indefinately.
