If my license is suspended in the US, can I still drive in Guam? I will be visiting family there. Will the laws applicable in NJ apply there too?
It depends on the reciprocity practices of that given state. While states generally honor the suspensions of other states, there are occasionally circumstances where one state would have no idea that a person's license had been suspended in another state.
It is my understanding that if your driving license is suspended in any state you are not allowed to operate a motor vehcile in any state or territory at any time.
Most all US States and territories are "reciprocal" which means the laws of the state where the offense occurred will apply in other States and territories as well.
Probably. Since you will have no valid license to drive on.
I have no idea what the law is in Guam. I'm a Washington attorney and have no idea what the law is in New Jersey. The answer to your question though, can be found on line if you search the Interstate Compact on Drivers' Licenses. Those states and territories that are signatories to the compact will honor a Washington suspension. If they aren't on the list, you would probably be alright. Do make sure you complete your probation though before you leave. Otherwise they court will issue a warrant and you could get jammed up at the airport.
If your license is revoked or suspended it will also be suspended in any state that has signed a reciprocal contract to honor that suspension. I do not believe that Guam has such an agreement, but you must ask the local police before you take the chance of being arrested. You can simply call the police station and ask them if they have an agreement to honor the suspension with the state that revoked your license.
You need consult a Guam attorney. Generally if under suspension in home state other state must be part of interstate compact.
The suspension laws apply to all states and US territories. If you are suspended out of NJ (or any other state or US territory), you are suspended in Guam.
You have to rely upon your CA license when driving out of state or country. It is suspended. NO, you can not drive anywhere legally.
No NJ law does not apply in Guam- I can't advise you about the law in Guam, but there is a likelihood if your license is suspended in any state in the US it will be considered suspended in Guam
If your license is suspensed in your home state then you cannot drive in u.s. Territories
That's a real grey area. Normally the states and colonies are all supposed to follow the others laws, but I doubt your State lets Guam know. Best to check your status when you get to Guam with a Guam attorney.
When you lose your license in one state, it applies to all states and territories.
You need two things to be able to drive in any state/territory. 1. A valid driver's license from some state. 2. Your privilege to drive in that state/territory can not be suspended/revoked.
In Illinois, you cannot drive in any other state, but it does not refer to territories. In any case, you will need an international driving license, and would suggest you find out from the issuing authority if you can get one.
I have know knowledge of law that relate to Guam. In Nebraska they honor other states revocation orders.
Yes. You must have a license to drive and Guam is a province of the US.
