Legal Guidance and Defense, Just a Phone Call Away - (719) 722-3254

Out of state drivers charged with a DUI face Colorado consequences and DUI penalties in their home state. This does not mean that you will be penalized twice, only that your state can add on any penalties that the other state may not enforce, which is why you should take measures now.

Non-Resident Violator Compact

While this may seem unfair, it is legal under the statewide agreement called the Non-Resident Violator Compact (NRVC). Colorado is a member of the NRVC, so if you were pulled over in another state that is also part of the compact, Colorado will be notified and can opt to penalize you for the DUI as well.

What Are the Penalties for an Out of State DUI Charge?

For out of state DUI's, you must take all the necessary precautions to prevent additional penalties and consequences, which can have long-lasting effects.

You could face these penalties for an out of state DUI charge:

  • Fines
  • Jail sentencing
  • Probations
  • License suspension
  • Driving record points
  • Community service
  • Alcohol monitoring
  • Offense reported to your home state

Non-Resident Violator Compact Penalties

If your home state has NRVC membership, you should know that Colorado penalizes an out-of-state driver under the same laws as a resident, which means a 9-month revocation of your driver's license for a first offense.

Non-residents are not allowed to apply to reinstate their license early. This is all the more reason why fighting your charge is more beneficial to you in the long run.
