Bankruptcy and DUI Impact on CPA License

That would be a decision for the licensing agency in the state in which you intend to license and or sit for the CPA exam. Please give them a call before you proceed with the CPA exam application.

Does DUI affect the CPA license application?

A more common question is whether DUI (driving under influence) affects your CPA license. This is generally not an issue.

The state boards require a licensee to have “good moral character.” Good moral characterof a CPA candidate is demonstrated by the lack of a history of dishonest or felonious acts. The Board considers several areas in evaluating an applicant’s moral character, and DUIs are not considered misdemeanor driving offences.

If you are concerned about previous offences and whether or how you should disclose this, you can call the state board and speak to a representative. If you worry about a potential bad record, calling (vs. emailing) is the way to do it.
