Out-of-State DUI

Arrested for drunk driving outside of Florida?

Just because you were arrested for DUI outside of Florida does not mean that your actions will not have consequences when you return home. Many individuals are charged with driving under the influence (DUI) while on vacation or attending to business in another state. When this happens, they must not only undergo the criminal procedure of the state in which they were arrested, but they must also suffer from license suspension the moment they return to Florida. Florida is one of many states under the Driver's License Compact, which requires all states in the compact to report traffic violations to the motorist's home state so that they can impose their administrative license suspension when the individual returns.

The penalties for DUI vary from state to state. If you are arrested for driving while intoxicated outside of Florida, you will be penalized according to that state's DUI laws and sentencing, which could be more or less severe than Florida's, unless you retain a skilled DUI lawyer who can fight your charges. When you come back to Florida, you could face the following terms of license suspension:

  • First DUI - 180 days to 1 year
  • Second DUI - 5 years
  • Third DUI - 10 years
  • Fourth DUI - Permanent
