Out of State DUI Attorneys in Fort Myers
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

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.
