It is possible to have your license suspended in a state other than the state that issued your current license. For example, if you're convicted of a reckless driving charge that you incurred while driving through Virginia (even though your license is from Florida), the Commonwealth of Virginia might suspend your license in Virginia. This means that any officer or court in Virginia will treat your license as suspended if you're caught driving in the state. It's important to know that Virginia will report your license suspension to your licensing state (Florida) and your licensing state might then choose to suspend your license as well. If you did not receive a ticket in Virginia, it is critical that you contact both the court in Virginia that suspended your license and your state's DMV to explain the error. Otherwise, you might end up with a suspended license due to someone else's mistake!
