Can I get a drivers license in a different state with revoked driving privileges?

A revoked drivers license is usually a consequence imposed due to major or on-going issues. It is illegal to attempt to outsmart the system by getting another a driver’s license in a different state.

When a person’s driver’s license is revoked, his privilege to drive has been permanently withdrawn. If the individual ever wants to drive again, he must wait a certain period of time and satisfy any requirements that have been made of him. Then, eventually, he can reapply for driving privileges and wait for the decision.

One reason why it is not permissible to obtain a driver’s license from a different state is because a person’s driving privileges are supposed to originate from his home state. Even individuals who have driving privileges are required to change their driver’s licenses if they move.

But, you may ask, what if my driver’s license is revoked and I actually move to another state?

The answer is still no. You cannot circumvent the system. You will not be eligible for a driver’s license in your new state until you have either gotten your revoked privileges reinstated or you rectify the situation and obtain a letter of clearance from the Motor Vehicle’s Department in the state where your driver’s license was revoked.

If you have a revoked driver’s license and you would like to rectify the situation so that you can get back behind the wheel, consult with a traffic violation attorney. Consultations are often free.
