IF YOU HAVE A DRIVER LICENSE FROM A STATE OTHER THAN ARIZONA, AND YOU HAVE BEEN ARRESTED AND/OR CONVICTED OF DUI IN ARIZONA, YOU NEED TO KNOW THE FOLLOWING:

  • Your driver license is at risk!

    • Your driver license could be suspended, revoked, cancelled or withdrawn according to your home State or the State law of where the driver license was issued. 

    • Your driver license could be suspended or revoked just as if you were convicted of DUI in your home State.

    • Individual State driver license offices eventually communicate with one another via computer.

    • Sometime this takes months before you are notified by your home State DMV.

      • Make sure you mailing address is current with your home State DMV as they will generally send you a notification which you are deemed to have received upon mailing to your last known address.

       

    • PLEASE NOTE: Driving on a suspended license in Arizona and most other States is a very serious offense.

       

      • If you are arrested for DUI while your Arizona, or out of state, driver license is suspended for any DUI conviction, or an implied consent suspension either in Arizona or some other State,  you most likely will be charged with aggravated (felony) DUI.  This is a class four (4) felony punishable up to 3.75 years in prison.  The penalties for this offense in other States may vary so it is important to check your home State's laws.

      • In Arizona, driving on a suspended license is a Class One misdemeanor which carries up to 6 months in county jail and a $2,500.00 fine with an 80% surcharge, plus an additional period of suspension of your Arizona driver license.

    • Generally, whatever punishment you receive in the Arizona DUI matter has nothing to do with what happens with your driver license in your home State.

      • Example:  If you were convicted in the Arizona of DUI, and you had a California driver license, you would  be facing driver license suspension requirements in California just as if your were convicted of DUI in California.
