My license is suspended for a DUI in west Virginia but I live in south carolina.
I was arrested for two DUIs in West Virginia before I turned 21. I served my jail sentence and enough time has passed that I can get my license back if I pay my fines, take DUI classes, and have a breathalyzer installed in my vehicle.
