What Happens If I Get A DUI While Visiting TN? (video)

Leading Murfreesboro criminal defense attorney David Clarke discusses Tennessee DUI laws and penalties for visitors. Clarke Law Firm has many years of experience defending their clients in Tennessee against DUI charges and other offenses.


” Even though they’re from other states, Tennessee DUI laws are going to apply. They’re going to have to come to court obviously here in Tennessee. Then part of the – if you’re convicted of a DUI, part of the mandatory minimum punishments is that your license is revoked in Tennessee. Then Tennessee will notify your state, wherever state you’re from, which is then going to cause problems or revoke your license in your state. There is a way to get a restricted license in Tennessee and then you should be able to get a restricted license in your state. The logistics of how that happens is going to be different depending on if you’re from North Carolina or Georgia or whatever state you’re coming from. It could become very complicated. In those kinds of cases, it is definitely important that you hire an attorney, someone who’s handled a lot of DUIs and someone who has handled DUIs involving someone from another state because you’re going to definitely want to make sure that you can have a license so that when you get back to your normal life and whatever state you’re from that you can have a license and still get to work and do whatever you need to do in your daily life.”
