Out-of-State DUI Charges
Arrested for DUI while visiting Florida?
The process and penalties for Florida DUI charges can be more complicated if you are from another state. You may think that, since you were charged with driving under the influence in Florida, your penalties will not follow you back to your home state. Unfortunately, this is not the case. When you are arrested for drunk driving in this state, you will be tried and penalized (if convicted) according to Florida state law. Then, when you return home, your license will be subject to suspension according to your home state's laws.
Almost every state throughout the country takes part in the Driver's License Compact, which requires one state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to share important traffic violation information - such as driving under the influence - with the DMV of the individual's home state. This is to prevent the offender from getting away with a serious traffic violation just because they were convicted out-of-state.
