Out of State Drivers and DUI In Florida
DUI Attorneys Serving Bradenton And Manatee County, Florida
If you reside in another state and were arrested for DUI (driving under the influence) in Manatee County, Florida, an attorney at The Law Place can help you. The process is slightly different than if you were a Florida resident. Because your license was issued in another state, the Florida DHSMV does not have the authority to suspend it but rather will suspend your driving privileges in Florida. However, it is important to note that you will still face criminal court proceedings and penalties under Florida law. You will also still face a Florida DMV hearing.
Depending on the outcome of your criminal case and DMV hearing, Florida will report your violation to your home state. As a member of the Non-Resident Violators Compact and Drivers License Compact, Florida will report all traffic violations to the driver’s home state. Upon receiving news of the violation, your home state will then have the authority to suspend or revoke your driver’s license.
