The Interstate Driver’s License Compact

Most states have a Driver's License Compact, also known as the Interstate Driver's License Compact, in which they agree to share driver’s information regarding DUI charges and other traffic violations. This means that if you live in one state, but are arrested to drunk driving in another, authorities in your home state will be informed about your arrest.

If you are convicted, you could face the criminal penalties of the state in which you were arrested in, and not your home state’s laws. However, after you have served your sentence from the state you were arrested in, you may face additional punishment from your home state’s laws. These penalties can include:

  • Additional jail time
  • Additional fines and court costs
  • License suspension or revocation
  • Mandatory enrollment in an alcohol or driving course
  • Installation of an ignition interlock devices, at your expense
