Time to wait after DUI/DWI for clearance required postion?


I recently completed all court requirements for a DUI conviction (last year), and I am considering US government positions that require either Secret or Top Secret clearances. With no other blemishes (criminal, financial, behavior, etc) how long after completing court DUI requirements do I need to wait before I can obtain a Secret Clearance? 5years? 7years? And for a TS clearance, is it 10 years?



If all you have is one DUI then it will not prevent you from being granted a clearance regardless of when it happened.
