Out of State Drivers: DUI Charges in Austin

It you are convicted of DWI while driving in the Austin area, it is quite possible to have your driver's license suspended in your home state. As a result of the Driver's License Compact among many U.S. states, an offense by an out-of-state driver is frequently reported to the home state where the driver holds license. Under state law, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) may revoke or suspend a person's license if they believe that the person has committed an offense in another state or Canadian province that would be grounds for suspension or revocation if committed in this state.
