What Happens If I’m Arrested For DUI But I’m From Another State?

If you are driving a motor vehicle in California and get arrested for DUI and you are from another state driving with an out-of-state license, you will be prosecuted just as if you were a resident and may also lose driving privileges and be penalized in your own state.

Many people are unaware of the Driver’s License Compact that every state except Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Tennessee are a part of. This compact allows all member states to share information regarding DUI arrests. Once you are convicted, your state will be notified and you could receive penalties for the violations as if you received them in your own state.

If you are from another state and have been arrested for DUI it is imperative that you get help from an experienced DUI attorney that will aggressively pursue the best defense possible.

Being arrested for a DUI is frightening enough. However, when you are away from home it can be much more difficult to deal with due to distances from your family, the potential of having to spend time in jail, as well as having to handle penalties in both states.
