OUT OF STATE DUI

CHARGED WITH DUI WHILE OUT OF TOWN?

If you currently reside in another state and were arrested for DUI in Washington, you may face repercussions in both your home state and Washington. Because of the Interstate Driver’s License Compact, information about a person’s driving record may be shared between states. The Washington DOL cannot suspend an out-of-state driver’s license because it is considered to be property of another state, but they can suspend a person’s driving privileges within the state and will notify the licensing state of DUI charges through the Interstate Driver’s License Compact. In most cases, your home state will revoke your driving privileges if you are charged and convicted of DUI in another state, and in order to prevent this you will need representation from a Seattle DUI attorney.

OUR SEATTLE DUI DEFENSE FIRM CAN REPRESENT YOU!

Out of state DUI charges are very serious because not only do you have to deal with the drunk driving laws and penalties from the state in which you received the DUI, but you must also deal with the repercussions in your home state. Whether you were simply visiting another state, or were there temporarily when you received drunk driving charges, you need to know that without a lawyer you may have to appear at court in the state where the DUI arrest occurred. This can be very difficult to do if your home state is far away because you may be required to travel back to the place where you were arrested for drunk driving, causing you to miss work and pay travel expenses. Having a DUI defense lawyer to handle your out of state DUI charges will be very valuable. As our attorneys know, the best way to prevent you from losing your driving privileges in your home state is to make sure you aren’t convicted of driving while intoxicated in Washington.
