If I have a DUI in one state, will it show up if I apply for a license in another state?
Question Details: If I have a DUI in TN with a restricted license and am taking a job in TX but my TN license does not say restricted, will the TX DMV run my TN license and see the DUI when I apply for a TX license?
Yes, it should show when you apply for a license in a new state. There is an "interstate compact" or agreement between states that they honor each other's traffic offenses and actions (e.g. restriction, suspension, revocation) taken about licenses. To make this happen, the state's share all their license-related data. The TN DUI should show as much as a TX DUI would.
