The Consequences of an Out-of-State DUI in Florida

Florida is member state of the Non-Resident Violator Compact (NRVC) and the Driver License Compact (DLC). This means your driving record is shared among most states. If you are ticketed in Florida, all member states will be made aware of it. So if your license is suspended in Florida, it could be suspended in your state as well. It works the other way around too; if your license has been suspended in a member state, Florida will uphold that same suspension.

  • Do you have any prior DUI convictions? - If the conviction was in another member state, then the Florida DMV will know about it, and your license would be suspended as if you had committed a repeat DUI offense in Florida, not a first time DUI.
  • Did you refuse to take a breath or blood test? - Then your license could be suspended for a year across all member states. If you have previously refused a DUI test in a member state and you then refuse chemical tests in Florida, you could face up to one year of license suspension for a first offense.

To Sum Up

In brief, if you are arrested for drunk driving in Florida, then you could face license penalties in Florida and all member states, including your home state, and then you would also face Florida's criminal penalties for a DUI offense. Find out if your state is a member of the NRVC or DLC, or you can talk to a St. Augustine DUI lawyer directly about the consequences of your out-of-state DUI arrest.
