Can a person have driver licenses in two states?

Can a person have driver licenses in two states? My friend had commercial license in NY. He moved to PA and get commercial DL there. But NY DL remains in his possession. Should he surrender NY DL to NY DMV? Can he keep it?

He should contact DMV NY and see if he is still eligible. But the short answer is yes, he can have two.
