My drivers record includes a DUI and 'leaving the scene of an accident' charges. The night it happened, I automatically received a 3 month suspension. What exactly was the suspension for as I was not yet convicted for the crimes.
I was convicted 3 months later, when my license was deemed suspended for 12 months in court.
When searching for a quote, when they ask how many suspensions on your record, am I supposed to say 2 or 1? Just not sure exactly the reason my license was suspended at the time the incident happened.

The suspension you refer to is called an ADLS (Administrative Drivers' License Suspension). This is enforced as soon as you are charged with a DUI so that you can no longer drive your vehicle - for that evening for obvious reasons - and for the next 90 days. When searching for insurance you technically need to disclose 2 suspensions, although most brokers will realize that someone has served both the 3 month and 12 months suspensions, often consecutively. I'm just an insurance broker though, better to ask your arresting officer why you were charged. Hopefully that opportunity never presents itself again.
