The Interstate Driver's License Compact (IDLC) is an agreement between 45 participating states for the sharing of information regarding certain types of convictions, including most DUI related convictions, between the participating states.
Under the Compact, when a resident of one state is convicted of a DUI related offense in another state, the driver's home state will be notified. The type of action, if any, the driver's home state will take will vary from state to state.
The National Driver Register (NDR) is a central repository of information on individuals whose privilege to drive has been revoked, suspended, canceled or denied or who have been convicted of serious traffic-related offenses. All 50 States and the District of Columbia participate in the NDR.
