Out of State DUI Charges
Tampa DUI Defense Lawyer
Most states are part of a Driver License Compact. This agreement involves the participating states reporting traffic violations on a national database. This database is called the National Driver Register, and it is viewable by all the states that are part of the interstate compact. A person who lives out of state who is arrested for DUI in Florida will have that offense reported to the register and will face license suspension in their home state until all of the penalties in Florida have been completed.
