    Default Can You Be Arrested at the DMV in Florida if You Have a Warrant in Another State

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida

    Can someone be arrested when they go to get a Florida divers license or Florida ID if they have a warrant in another state? Or can they only be expedited if they do something to get arrested in Florida?
    Thank you!

    You can be arrested at the DMV or potentially anywhere else your ID is run.

    If you have an outstanding warrant, you are at risk of arrest the moment you step out your front door, regardless of where you're going. Whether or not you'd be extradiated on an out of state warrant depends on how bad the state that wants you, wants you. No, you don't have to commit some new crime - the warrant alone is enough for you to be taken into custody.
