Georgia has participated in the Non-Resident Driver Compact since 1980, indicating that if you are convicted of a DUI in Georgia, you will suffer penalties imposed by the state of Georgia and the state where you live. Currently, Wisconsin and Michigan are the only states that do not participate in Non-Resident Driver Compact or the Driver's License Compact (DLC). Wisconsin and Michigan, however, can and may suspend your license based on a conviction in another state.
Essentially, you may have to face punishment in Georgia for the criminal offense and suspension of your license in your home state. To regain your ability to drive, you will have to reinstate your privilege to drive in Georgia and your actual driver's license in your home state. As an out of state driver you have special concerns when it comes to your defense that our firm can address and decide the best course of action for your case.
