Out-of-State Drivers Charged With A Florida DUI

Out of State Drivers & DUI
Florida is a member of the Interstate Drivers License Compact, an agreement that 45 states have entered into concerning traffic violations. The theory behind this agreement is “One Driver, One License, One Record.” What does this mean if you are an out of state driver arrested for DUI in Florida? It means that Florida will report your violation to your home state, where license suspension or revocation penalties may be applied in addition to any criminal penalties that Florida may enforce.
