Out of State Drivers

If you were recently passing through North Carolina and received a traffic ticket, you should immediately contact an experienced Traffic Attorney at the Whited Doby & Ray Attorneys at Law to understand how a ticket in North Carolina may affect your driving privileges in your home state. North Carolina is a member of the Driver’s License Compact which means that all traffic violations within the state must be reported back to the home driver’s state and North Carolina may report to states that are not members of the Driver’s License Compact. All states but Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Tennessee are members. It is important to note that while some states are not members of the Driver’s License Compact, the federal government also tracks serious traffic violations through the National Driver’s Registry. So for example, if you are convicted in North Carolina of driving 76/55, even though you live in Georgia and Georgia isn’t a member of the Driver’s License Compact, you may still lose your driving privileges in Georgia. In any event, it’s best to have an attorney review your driving history to insure that you are not causing your driving privileges to be revoked or your insurance to be negatively affected.
