I was charged with a DUI in Florida and finish what the court ordered. But I wasn't able to get my license from Florida and I moved to MA.
I am not licensed to practice in FL or MA, but generally speaking, with certain exceptions, each state is aware of an individual's driving activity in another state, especially as to DUI. It appears that MA may be refusing to issue you a license because of the FL case, but there may be additional reasons, too. First thing you should do is ensure you fully finished all you obligations with the court and DMV in FL. Speak to your FL attorney about making sure everything was filed with the court as needed. Then clarify with the MA DMV what is holding you back. Good luck.
Contact your attorney from the Florida case to make sure you've done everything that you're supposed to do. You may also want to contact the Florida DMV to see what else they need before switching your driving status there back to valid. You won't be able to apply for a license in another state until you get valid with Florida.
