Understanding the National Driver License Compact and Your DUI Case

The National Driver License Compact program is a voluntary agreement among U.S. states to share information about driving-related arrests, charges, and convictions, including the administrative penalties that may come with them. The program is operated by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA). About 43 states currently participate in the program, including New Hampshire.

Under the National Driver License Compact, driving under the influence (DUI) arrests, charges, and convictions that happen in any one state don’t stay in that state. Instead, states inform one another of a driver’s previous record. This means that if you’re arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you’ll face similar consequences, whether your arrest occurs inside New Hampshire or outside of it. Being arrested or charged while vacationing in another state, for instance, may follow you home. You may return to New Hampshire to find that your license has been suspended or revoked, that you are facing DUI charges, or that other penalties await.

Being charged with drunk driving in New Hampshire or any other state can have severe consequences, even if you are never actually convicted. If you’re facing charges, please don’t hesitate to call an aggressive New Hampshire DUI defense attorney at Tenn And Tenn, P.A. We can fight on your behalf during every step of the process, from challenging an administrative license suspension to seeking the best possible result at trial.
