San Diego DUI criminal defense attorneys are often asked relevant questions by a Out of State License/Resident.
San Diego California DUI arrest? Do you have an out-of-state license the officer did not take? California DMV Order of Suspension or Temporary License issued to you by a San Diego drunk driving cop? Here’s what you may want to know:
Our Interstate Compact is a multi-state agreement between participating states to share information and reciprocate. This includes California license suspension actions and San Diego DUI convictions. If a person from a state has his or her driving privilege suspended or gets convicted of DUI in another state (e.g. California), the driver’s home state can be notified. Your home state may honor and reciprocate, i.e. take action to suspend the driver’s license of its resident.
Even if you do not have a California driver’s license and even if you do not plan to ever drive again in California, it is critical to know that a suspension of your driving privilege in California may result in a suspension of your home state driver’s license. No matter where you live, you probably want to avoid, if not at least minimize, any driver’s license suspension action by the California Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV). You will want a California DUI & DMV Specialist.
If you have any specific questions about how the Interstate Compact Act may apply in your case, you may want to contact a DUI/DMV Defense Specialist in San Diego.
