Hello - how long did the person Stay in Vermont and when did the person return to Texas?
You may NOT like this answer, but at least you will have more knowledge of the sitiuation. All DWI and DUI convictions have a significant impact on your driving privileges and your insurance premiums and rates. Laws regarding DWI and DUI in the 50 states generally determine the driving privileges of a person within the state. There are interstate laws regarding DWI/DUI. There is a interstate compact betwen 44 of the 50 states of the United States in regard to reporting and sharing DWI/DUI convictions.
Interstate drivers license compact is an agreement between 44 states in the U.S. These states will share information regarding certain types of convictions including drunk driving offenses like DWI and DUI. Only five states namely; California, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee, and Wisconsin do not belong to the compact. By sharing information on your DWI and DUI convictions, you would be left with very little choice but the six states.
You're out of luck on this one - Vermont DMV reports to Texas DMV. If that person were to avoid the information being discloses, he or she may want to consider moving to one of six states.
Thank you and have a GREAT day!
