If my license is revoked by the state of MN for DUI, am I able to legally drive in any other state during my revocation?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Minneapolis, MN

I've read that there are a few states that don't share DUI or other driving record information, does that mean it's possible to drive in those states while my license is revoked elsewhere?

    Answered . The short answer is no. if your MN license is not valid in MN, it is not valid anywhere.

    Answered . No, assuming you had a Minnesota DL when you got a DWI in Minn. The best way to solve this problem is to fight the DWI and the companion civil DL implied consent case, and win both.

    Answered . No, because every state requires you to have a valid license to drive in that state. If you were pulled over, it has nothing to do with sharing DUI information (which by the way is largely a fiction). it has to do with, they run a license check, you come back revoked in MN. you are guilty of driving without a valid license issued by the arresting state or any other state.

    Answered . If your license is a Minnesota license, then the answer is you have no driving privileges anywhere until Minnesota restores your privileges. If you move to a different state it is up to that state to decide whether to give you a new license.

    If you were a Wisconsin or North Dakota resident, for example, and your license was revoked by Minnesota, that revocation would only apply in Minnesota, until your home state took action.
