I have a friend that lives in Texas and I would like to relocate to Texas. I just received a AOS degree in HVAC and am certified. There are plenty of jobs for this in Texas and I would need a license to pursue this field of expertise.
Not until you clear the suspension in New York. All 50 states honor each other's driver's license suspensions.
Now that we are in the age of computers, a Texas computer check will show the NY problems and they likely will not give you a license.

I believe you are supposed to only have 1 license at a time.

You will have to clear up your suspension in NY before you can get a license in TX.

I am also licensed in Texas, so I know a few things about Texas law. First - they will look to see what is going on in NY. If they see your NY license has issues, you will not be given a TX driver's license. 2nd- this may be more important...as to your desire to get a job in Texas doing HVAC...right now is a very slow time in this industry as it doesn't get very cold. Money may be tight with few jobs in HVAC right now. They pay decently but summers in TX are nothing like you have ever experienced in NY. It is not uncommon to have 20+ consecutive days of 100+ degree temps in the summer. That is outside. Not inside an attic where the AC units are housed. You are looking at 125-150 degree temps. Don't way to dissuade you, just think you need to know that Texas summers begin in early May and last until Mid-October. Good luck.
I am a NY criminal defense attorney and a former Asst. DA.

This is just my take on the question presented. To get an accurate assessment of your case, you need to meet with a lawyer in your area before proceeding forward.
