Out of State driver’s license
I only have 15 days to act on your behalf
If you have a
license from a state other than Oklahoma the officer should not have
kept your actual license but sometimes they do. Your driving privileges
in Oklahoma are set to be revoked within 30 days and this could lead to
your home state revoking your driver's license. Each state administers
its rules regarding revocations.
45 states belong to the Interstate Drivers License Compact and they all report driving violations to each other. Your licensing state may or may not take action, depending on the outcome of your DUI case in Oklahoma and what is actually reported to the licensing state. An example is Kansas. Kansas will not suspend your Kansas license if Oklahoma only reports an administrative revocation; they require a conviction on the criminal case before they will take action against a Kansas license. Different states have different rules. Other states may revoke your license based on an administrative revocation.
To preserve your rights, I must request a hearing within the required 15 days. If not, your privileges will be suspended in Oklahoma and your home state will be notified. Due to the different rules, an attorney cannot be current on the regulations for all 50 states. That is why it is to your advantage to have a BOARD CERTIFIED DUI LAWYER protecting you. I am in contact on a daily basis with DUI attorneys all across the nation. I am able to access information and provide you with professional advice from other nationally known DUI attorneys who practice daily with your states agency. This advice is provided at no additional charge to you as the client.
