    Default Can You Hold Valid Driver's Licenses in Two States

    My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Maryland. If the holder of a VA license who had lost his VA license and then applied for a MD license required by law to turn in his VA license if recovered or replaced after getting the MD license? Does having both licenses constitute fraud in either state which could result in further legal issues? Meanwhile if the driver has his/her driving privileges suspended in VA but did not reveal he had a VA license (rather showed his MD license) then is he/she still required to surrender the VA license in VA?

    Can anyone point me to the specific state laws that address these questions?

    Thx!

    having a license in a state you are not legally able to obtain a license is illegal. I know of know states that allow you to carry a license in their state as well as another state concurrently.

    You need to figure out what state you can legally hold a license.

    The states communicate the issuance and turn in of licenses. You won't get away with this (for long).

    When you sign for the MD license you certify under perjury you hold no other license and that your driving privileges are not under suspension in another state. If you lie, your license is not worth the paper and plastic it is printed on.
