If I Had A DUI And It Was Continued And Eventually Dismissed Will It Show Up When I Apply For Jobs?

Let's say you made a mistake and had a DUI charge brought against you. Let's also say it happened in a state where you were given a continuance and then after a period of time the charge was dismissed. Now let's say you are applying for a job with a new employer and you are wondering if they are going to find out about your DUI. This is an interesting question in that the answer is maybe. If a criminal background check is pulled and, having had the charge dismissed, it would not show up as you having a criminal history. That being said, if your employer decides to pull a driving record, it most likely will show up as part of your driving record.
