Have PA license. Was convicted of DUI in NY. 6 month license suspension, 6 month interlock, and DUI classes.
However, the DMV was not notified by the courts. I never received a letter from NY DMV in regards to my license suspension in that state. In addition, I have not received a letter from PA DMV. Is there a timeframe that the courts have to contact DMV and is there a timeframe that my home state must be notified?
This is second DUI so PA will revoke license for 1 year if they find out. I am concerned that years down the line PA will find out and then revoke my license at that point. Is that possible?
If the courts never sent conviction to NY DMV, will it still be in the National Driver's License database?
I highly doubt it will be years down the road, but, as with any intergovernmental interaction, it will take time. You are correct; however, that under the driver's license compact, Pa will likely suspend your license for 1 year because it is not your first.
Best of Luck!

I have seen it take 6-8 months sometimes. The delay is usually caused by the transmitting state. Also be aware that your PA DL will be suspended for one year not the 6 months that NY suspended you.
