The National Driver Registry catalogs all of your moving violations and a variety of other things associated with your license, including points and suspensions. Their site is www.nationaldriverregister.com/ You can go on and find out if your state is a reciprocal with the NDR. What this means is that some states don’t share with the NDR. If this is the case, you can go to another state, as long as they don’t check the NDR.
If the state you live in uses the NDR and the state you want to go to doesn’t use the NDR, then you’re able to get the license. If you are in a state that doesn’t use the NDR and the state you are going into does, you’re still okay. If they both use the NDR, you’re not going to get anywhere because the state will see that you’ve got a suspension and your request will be denied.
Now, if you are going to go into another state to get a license, you’ve got to show residency. That means that you’ve got to have mail from that state. So how do you do that? Two ways. The first is you can move to that state. If that’s not an option for you, then you can visit the state and set up a PO Box. You’ll need to forward some of your mail there and periodically check the box. It will also mean that you’re paying a monthly bill for that PO Box.
The other alternative is talking to the state in which your license has been suspended and asking for a hardship license, where you’ll at least be able to drive to and from work on it.
