Sorry for your situation.Driver License Compact
(DLC) is an interstate compact
used by states of the United States
to exchange information concerning license suspensions and traffic violations of non-residents and forward them to the state where they are licensed known as the home state. Its theme is One Driver, One License, One Record
. The home state would treat the offense as if it had been committed at home, applying home state laws to the out-of-state offense. The action taken would include, but not be limited to, offenses such as speeding, suspension of license or DWI/DUI
. It is not supposed to include non-moving violations like parking tickets, tinted windows, loud exhaust, etc. [Wikipedia]
Both Connecticut and Florida are members of the interstate driver's license compact.
Connecticut since 1993 and Florida since 1967.
Moreover, the Driver's License Compact is no longer being pushed and will be replaced by the DLA or Driver's License Agreement
over time. There are currently three states that are members of the DLA: Connecticut, Arkansas and Massachusetts.
The Driver License Agreement imposes much tougher fines and penalties against drivers that commit violations covered under the DLA. For example a person driving through a DLA member state that gets stopped for illegally tinted windows, i.e. the window tint is darker than that state allows, but the window tint meets the drivers home state laws for window tinting.
The driver will face fines and penalties from the state where the violation occurred and will have to remove the window tint from the vehicle when the driver returns to their home state to meet the state laws where the violation occurred even though the driver has left the state where the violation occurred.
So, regretfully if you are convicted of a DUI in Connecticut they will notice Florida and your license will be suspended as per Florida law.
I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
