Question ID: 534283
I had my driver's license suspended in Louisiana about a year ago for two unpaid speeding tickets. I have since moved to the Bay Area and will soon be applying for a California driver's license. My question: A) Will California DMV be aware of the suspension if I don't disclose it. B) If I do disclose the suspension, what effect will the suspension have on the new application?

Dear nouvelleorleans71-ga; Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. Let?s first begin with some definitions: DRIVER LICENSE COMPACT (DLC) - An agreement between states that basically says you have only ONE drivers license record. Meaning, if you violate the law in one state it goes on your record (and stays) with whatever license you hold. NON-RESIDENT VIOLATOR COMPACT (NRVC) ? An agreement between states to that communicate with one another (i.e. pass along information) if you get a ticket out of your home state. DRIVER LICENSE COMPACT http://www.dui.com/whatsnew/driverlicensecompact.html So. . . California is a member of the DRIVER LICENSE COMPACT but not the NON-RESIDENT VIOLATOR COMPACT. Louisiana on the other hand is a member of both DLC and NVRC. What this means is that Louisiana will report your suspension to California if you try to obtain a California license. Like it or not, it?s really all about insurance my friend. 4 CAR INSURANCE QUOTES http://www.4carinsurancequotes.com/reciprocity.htm Furthermore, in addition to computer systems at the state level, each state also has access to databases at the NATIONAL CRIME INFORMATION CENTER. Any convictions (such as those that often result n the suspension of a driver?s license) will be found in this database. You can rest assured that this will be researched by California prior to issuing you a driver license. I hope you find that my research exceeds your expectations. If you have any questions about my research please post a clarification request prior to rating the answer. Otherwise I welcome your rating and your final comments and I look forward to working with you again in the near future. Thank you for bringing your question to us. Best regards; Tutuzdad-ga ?
