Out Of State DUI
About Out of State DUI
Florida and many other states in the country are members of the National Drivers Compact. This means any traffic offense committed in Florida or any other member state is reported to the National Driver Registry. This is a nationwide database accessible to all member states. If you are facing DUI charges it is important to consult a Fort Lauderdale DUI attorney who can help you with your defense.
Out of State DUI Lawyer in Ft. Lauderdale
If you hold an out of state driver’s license and are charged and/or convicted of a DUI in Florida, your home state may have that information on your driving record. The member states have agreed to treat a driving record anywhere in the country as one record. If you have a previous DUI conviction(s) in your home state, then the charge against you in Florida can be treated as a second or subsequent offense.
If a breath, blood or urine test shows a BAC of .08% or higher or if you refuse a breath, blood, or urine test, the officer will inform you that your driving privileges in Florida will be suspended automatically. A DUI lawyer with our firm can request a hearing to prevent the suspension of your driving privileges and investigate on your behalf to fight any criminal charges. The hearing must be requested within 10 days of your arrest. If you receive a suspension in Florida, your home state may or may not suspend your driver’s license.
