If your drivers license is suspended in your home state can you legally drive out of state? Probably not, I don't know but could I get away with it if I got pulled over? Would the cop know?[):)]

Yes WI will blab to the rest of the United States about a suspended or revoked DL. No you can't drive out of state. Every state has "soveriegn rights" over it's roads. So if you have a IL dl and you vacation in WI, like that ever happens, and you do something dumb in WI........ WI can suspend your driving privileg in WI. So you have a 49 state license. Also some states will list out of state traffic convictions on your DL, others will not accept out of state convictions........

Shotar has it right. If your license is suspended in your home state, and you are pulled over in another stae, you will get cited one of two ways 1) If there is a compact with your home state and the state you got pulled over in, you will get a Driving while suspended cite i.e, $500 bones (or so.) 2)If there is no compact, you will be cited for having no valid license i.e, $110 bones (or so). Depending on the state, traffic cites are civil or criminal, meaning you might go to jail, depending on the mood and caseload of the officer. Well, good luck on that trip. Save some beer money for bond money. ;-)
