This answer was rated:

My drivers license was suspended in Florida 81/2 years a go for dui. It is a 10 year suspension. I moved to Colorado and got a full license after using a breathalyzer for two years. What states can I drive in with my Colorado License?

Hello again, John.

A valid state driver's license typically permits the driver to drive in any state of the union unless there are restrictions on the license itself.

Every state would recognize the out of state license as valid, even if their laws would not have permitted you to obtain a valid license yet.

I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!

Will Florida recognize it as valid?

Yes, since you are no longer a resident of the state, they would typically honor the decision made by your current state of residence pursuant to the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the US Constitution.
