    Harvey’s Answer

    If you had a FL DL then WA will inform FL and your records will reflect the charge. You can obtain a copy of your driving record to verify. That means your insurance company will find out eventually. Up to you to report to them voluntarily but they could cancel your policy when they find out. Good luck.
