If a licensed driver in CA receives a DUI in another state and loses the Administrative Hearing in the other state but PLEAS the DUI to a negligent driving in the other state, will the CA DMV suspend my license? Basically I am asking if the CA DMV will suspend based on administrative hearing results or ONLY court convictions reported from out of state?
Probably not, but you must wait and see. Make sure your address is current with DMV.
The Interstate Compact is a multi-state agreement between participating states to share information and reciprocate. It covers license suspension actions and DUI convictions.
Your home or issuing state may honor & reciprocate - take action to suspend your resident's driver's license.
I'm pretty sure that the CA DMV will not take action against your CA privilege, but if your home state suspends your privilege there, then CA DMV may be required to refuse to renew your license here in CA until you get the suspension cleared up out there. Do a search on google for Interstate Compact and you will find information about why this happens.
