How does an out of state DUI affect your license?
My 22 year old son is serving a 3 month civil DUI suspension in VT. He is a resident of CT. Will he be suspended in CT due to reciprocity? What if CT does not have a civil DUI (only criminal)? He hasn't received anything from the CT DMV and the suspension began 10 days ago.
The states of Vermont and Connecticut are part of what is known as the Interstate Drivers License Compact which is an agreement between most all the states in the Union to share information about DUI arrests and convictions of drivers outside their own state lines. Theoretically, Connecticut should get wind of the arrest, conviction and suspension and in fact suspend his license in the state of Connecticut. I highly doubt that Connecticut does NOT suspend a license for a DUI conviction these days. Every state is pretty strict. 10 days is a relatively short period of time here. I would not take the chance and have him drive until the suspension is over.
