Helping You Fight Your Florida DUI Even If You’re From Another State

Being arrested for a DUI is already a highly stressful experience all on its own. However, if you have been charged with a DUI while visiting Florida from another state, the situation can be more difficult. Under the Driver’s License Compact, Florida along with other states across the country agree to share information about DUI arrests and other traffic offenses. This means that if you have been caught driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or other intoxicating substance in Fort Myers, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is required to pass this information to the Department in your home state, which can result in the suspension of your driver’s license in both Florida and your resident state.

Understanding the Driver’s License Compact

The Driver’s License Compact was established in an effort to penalize hazardous drivers and decrease the number of car accidents. The agreement requires participating states to report DUI offenses and impose the mandatory revocation of driving privileges. If you have been arrested in Florida, a first time DUI offense means suspension of your driving license from 180 days to a year. Consequently, the DMV in your home state has the authority to enact the same penalty and subject your driving privileges to a similar equivalent suspension.
