WILL POINTS FROM NY TRANSFER TO ANOTHER STATE?
Many people may have heard of something called the Driver License Compact. This is an interstate agreement used to exchange information concerning license suspensions and traffic violations that occur in a state other than the one in which the driver is licensed. If a driver licensed in State A gets a ticket and/or gets suspended in State B, this compact enables State A to get notification of this from State B.
Currently, 45 states and the District of Columbia are members of the compact. New York is one of the member states. Thus, if you are a driver who is licensed in a compact member state other than NY and you get a ticket or have a related driving issue in NY, you should do some research before you “just pay” that NY ticket.
