I got a dui and plan on completing all necessary court requirements before I move. I have a one year suspension on my license although I can apply for a hard workship permit. After that one year suspension period, I must install a Breathalyzer for 1 year. If I move to Washington during my 1st year period (March to July), do I still need to install a Breathalyzer and obtain a workship permit in the state of Washington?
Your suspension would definitely transfer. States have a compact to prevent people from moving around to avoid suspension or going to other states to get drivers licenses. Whether you would qualify for a provisional license in Washington or they would require you to get an Interlock as a condition of that license depends on the laws in Washington. I would contact a DWI attorney who practices in the county you are moving to. They will be able to help you.
