Out of State Driver's License
If you are arrested for DUI and have a license from a state other than Oklahoma, the officer more than likely will keep your drivers license. Oklahoma will retain your license and suspend your driving privilege even though it cannot suspend your driving privilege in your home state.
45 states belong to the Interstate Drivers License Compact and all member states report driving violations to each other. Your licensing state may or may not take action, depending on the outcome of your DUI case in Oklahoma and what is actually reported to the licensing state. An example is Kansas. Kansas will not suspend your Kansas license if Oklahoma only reports an administrative revocation; they require a conviction on the criminal case before they will take action against a Kansas license. Different states have different rules.
To preserve your rights, I must request a hearing within the required 15 days. If not, your privileges will be suspended in Oklahoma and your home state will be notified. Due to the different rules, an attorney cannot be current on the regulations for all 50 states. That is why it is to your advantage to have a DUI LAWYER protecting you. I am in contact on a daily basis with DUI attorneys all across the nation. I am able to access information and provide you with professional advice from other nationally known DUI attorneys who practice daily with your states agency. This expertise is provided at no additional charge to you as the client.
