A: If you were placed on probation, you were convicted. If you were placed on supervision, you were not convicted. The supervision will be visible only to law-enforcement and the Secretary of State and the states attorney. And once the statutory summary suspension has terminated, it will not be visible to the general public, including your insurance company. This is because you are a first offender; otherwise you would not be eligible for DUI supervision if in fact that’s what you received

A: If you were given Probation, you have been convicted of a DUI. If you were not given Probation, but instead were given Court Supervision, which is typical for a first time DUI, you have not been convicted of a DUI.
