Minnesota is one of the participating states who follow the Interstate Driver’s License Compact Agreement. The agreement requires that states share information regarding certain types of convictions, including DWI. Essentially, the agreement states that if a resident of one state gets a DWI conviction or driver’s license revocation in another state, then the driver’s home state will be advised. If you are a Minnesota driver who gets a DWI in another state, call experienced DWI Minneapolis Attorney, Gerald Miller, to set up a free consultation right away.
Out of State DWI Consequences
In Minnesota, an out of state conviction is given the same effect as if the conviction had occurred in the home state. This means that the individual is subject to suspensions, revocations, and/or limitations of their driver’s license in Minnesota, as well as the state in which the offense occurred.
