DUI in Oklahoma & Out-of-State Licenses
DUIs happen frequently in every state in America. At times, a driver may be arrested for a DUI in a state other than his or her own. If you are an out-of-state driver who has been charged in Oklahoma, your case requires special consideration.
DUIs Away From Home
An out of state DUI leads to a whole host of legal complications. In Oklahoma, the chief complication is that the state can only suspend a person’s right to drive in Oklahoma. Our state can suspend licenses issued here, but do not have the legal jurisdiction to suspend licenses from other states.
This does not mean that a DUI does not effect on an out-of-state license. The state where the arrest occurred will report the DUI to the state where the license was issued. At that point, each individual state will choose to take action, or not depending on their own DUI laws and the circumstances of the arrest.
Working Across State Lines
If you are dealing with a DUI charge in a state other than the state in which your license was issued, it is imperative to get professional legal help as soon as possible. Dealing with DUI charges across state lines is tricky, and can be difficult to navigate without help.
