Massachusetts Does Not Share DUI Information with Other States

Were you arrested for a DUI in another state? You are probably wondering how the out-of-state charges will affect your license.   Massachusetts is one of only 5 states that does not fully share DUI information with other states. The legal implications are major.

Driver’s License Compact

This compact was created to share driver’s license infractions and suspensions between states. The state where you live will treat your out-of-state charges as if the violations were committed in your home state. This only holds true with member states. If a state is not part of this compact they will not share or receive your information from the member states. If the state agrees to share DUI information, when you get home you could face an in-state DUI charge. Massachusetts does not share DUI information with other states through this compact.


Although Massachusetts is not a member of the Driver’s License Compact, they do share information through the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). If you received an out of state DUI you should contact a Massachusetts attorney to find out the implications of your personal case. Attorney Rory Munns provides free legal consultations and is available 24/7.

Certain DUI charges may be shared with Massachusetts through the RMV. You may not face in-state charges, but might have your license suspended. In order to get your license back legal action is needed. There are several laws and agreements that effect your fate. There are drivers with out of state DUIs that do not impact their Massachusetts license. Other drivers have their home state license suspended. Legal counsel is necessary to determine what is involved in your individual case.
