Out-of-State Licensees

Almost all States now report convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs back to the driver’s home state. Thus, if you drive in New York on an out-of-state driver’s license and you are charged with DWI, a conviction of DWI or DWAI will almost certainly be reported back to your home state’s Department of Motor Vehicles.  Thus, not only will New York penalize you, but your home state will likely penalize you as if you had received the charge there. Since many States punish DWI offenders at least as severely as New York does, you may wish to contest the charge in New York in an attempt to avoid such consequences.
