If you have a California driver's license, and get a DUI in California, your license will be suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles. What if you get a DUI outside of California? Then, the Interstate Driver's License Compact applies.
The IDLC is an agreement between 45 states to communicate about driving-related crimes, including DUI convictions. The states agree to notify each other of a DUI conviction. Some states take action on your license only after being notified of a DUI court conviction. Some states will only take action if the burden of obtaining a criminal conviction in the other state is equal to that of the home state. Some states may add penalities and other states may impose lesser penalities.
If you receive a DUI in Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee, or Wisconsin, no report will be forwarded, as those states are not part of the Compact.
It takes a good DUI defense attorney to advise you about the consequences of a DUI outside of California.
