In Ontario, the penalties for DUI can result in your losing your driving license for a year for a first offense, or a lifetime for a third. The consequences of a DUI charge can be at the least upsetting, a DUI conviction will be both costly and devastating, can lead to the suspension of your license, a criminal record and a great increase in your insurance premiums.
