Out-Of-State DUI Attorney 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. When an out-of-state driver is arrested for DUI, the state of Florida will automatically assign that person a Florida driver’s license number.
Beckham Solis, Attorneys at Law, 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.
Multistate 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.
Beckham Solis, Attorneys at Law, provides excellent counsel and representation for anyone who has been charged with DUI and needs to protect their right to drive once they return home.
