Can I get a MN occupational license and use it out of state since I work in New Mexico and Texas?
I currently live in New Mexico and was cited for a OWI in Wisconsin with a Minnesota's drivers license.

What can I expect?
I was stopped for a "turn signal not coming on", even though it did, last night.
