Your probation may be complete, but you must show at least 5 years of good moral conduct before qualifying for citizenship. Your DUI may disqualify you at this point and you would have to wait at least 5 years from the date of conviction before reapplying.

I would petition the court to have the DUI expunged and once it is, apply again for your citizenship.

Once probation is over you can reapply. There is no particular waiting period. You still must prove that you were a person of good moral character for the five years preceding the application.
