Out-of-State Offenses

DUI Defense Attorney Handling Out-of-State Offenses

Massachusetts laws treat out-of-state DUI convictions as if they occurred within the state. This can create a very serious problem for an individual applying for a driver's license in Massachusetts, as the National Drivers Registry will be searched for your name, and if a DUI conviction is found on your record, you may be denied your driver's license.

This is also true if you have a Massachusetts driver's license and your name comes up on this nationwide registry. This can set you up for some real confusion if you have moved and don't receive the notice of suspension. The next time you are stopped by law enforcement, you will likely be charged with driving with a suspended license, which is a very serious offense.

This is not the sort of problem you want to solve without the assistance of a defense attorney from the DUI Defense Group. The paperwork is complex and the requirements are so specific that you will be denied a license if you fail to provide the correct paperwork.

Steps to Clearing An Out-of-State DUI

If you have an out-of-state DUI conviction, you will have to jump through some legal hoops to get your license in Massachusetts reinstated. You will first have to clear up the charge in the state where you received it. You will need a reinstatement and clearance letter not more than 30 days old to submit to the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). You will need your driving record from the other state, also no more than 30 days old. If your license was suspended or revoked due to a DUI charge in the other state, you may be required to submit a court abstract from the case.
