Re: Hold Drivers Licenses in Two States, Pennsylvania Suspended but Florida Remains V
If your FL driver's license has a hole punched in it, it is INvalid regardless of what the website says. In other words, you get pulled over, you hand that FL license to the officer, and the response you'll get is "this license is not valid"...
If you were to go to the FL DMV to get a replacement, then you can bet they will find out about your PA license (see NDR link below). If at the time you do go there your PA license is suspended, then they will find out about that as well. Even if they do not find out at the time you request an FL replacement, PA & FL are BOTH members in the Driver License Comapct (DLC) AND the Non Resident Violator Compact (NRVC) which requires both states to report suspensions/revocations and some serious violations to other member states. All that is aside from the status of your license being reported on the National Driver Register (NDR). So regardless of how you look at it, a license suspension in PA means that your driving privilege is suspended and as such, most, if not all states will honor that suspension and thereby, can cite you for driving while suspended.
Last but not least, most states forbid a driver from holding more than one state license (probably the reason why PA punched a hole in you FL license thereby deeming it as invalid). Whether that applies for FL and/or PA, I am not sure!
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
