Out-of-State Resident and Arrested for DUI?

D.U.I., Florida DUI, Florida Lawyer, Traffic ViolationsJust because you get arrested for DUI and are not from Florida doesn’t mean there won’t be consequences in your home state. The Interstate Drivers License Compact shares driving record information among several states and requires the State of Florida to notify your home state of your DUI arrest or license suspension. This could even result in your driving privileges being suspended in your home state because of reciprocity agreements.

If you are from out-of-state and were arrested in the Tampa Bay area for DUI, contact me so I can help you understand the laws which may affect you in your home state.
