20-4.25.  Review of license status in other states upon application for license in member state.

Upon application for a license to drive, the licensing authority of a state that is a member of the Drivers License Compact must determine if the applicant has ever held, or currently holds, a license to drive issued by another member state.  The licensing authority of the member state where the application is made may not issue the applicant a license to drive if:

(1)        The applicant has held a license, but it has been revoked for a violation and the revocation period has not ended.  If the revocation period is for more than one year and it has been at least one year since the license was revoked, the licensing authority may allow the applicant to apply for a new license if the laws of the licensing authority's state permit the application.

(2)        The applicant currently holds a license to drive issued by another member state and does not surrender that license. (1993, c. 533, s. 1.)
