Out-of-State DUI Attorney in Miami
I live out of state, or have an out of state license. What do I do now?
Motorists can be arrested for
driving under the influence (DUI) no matter what state they are in at the time. Each state has its
own laws and criminal process for those who are charged with DUI; therefore,
if you are arrested for drunk driving in Florida, but you have a license
from another state, you will have to go to trial in Florida and pay their
fines. As an out of state person is arrested for DUI, the State of Florida
will automatically assign that person a Florida Drivers License Number.
Our firm may be able to get the defendant a temporary driving permit, even
if he or she never had a Florida License to begin with, although the requisite
suspension times will able to the person’s Florida Driving Privilege.
Our firm has been able to represent out of state (and out of the country)
clients all the way through their cases by waiving their presence in court.
As DUI is a misdemeanor, an attorney can waive the presence of any out
of State Defendant through the appropriate motions.
Multi-State Driver's License Compact (DLC)
Florida and a number of other states are part of the Driver's License
Compact, which means that anyone who commits eligible traffic offenses
in any of those states will have their license suspended or revoked according
to their issuing state's laws. Florida is also part of the Non-Resident
Violators Compact (NRVC), which means that your traffic violation information
can be shared by Florida with any of the states in the compact.

for anyone who has been charged with DUI and needs to protect their right
to drive once they return home.
