What happens if I’m from another state but I’m convicted of DUI in South Dakota?

Technically, if you are from another state and are convicted of a DUI in South Dakota, the South Dakota court will suspend your driving privileges in South Dakota. However, a South Dakota court technically does not have jurisdiction over another state so it can’t suspend your out-of-state driver’s license. However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to continue driving without any consequences because it’s likely that your home state has an agreement with South Dakota to share DUI conviction information. This allows your home state to suspend your driver’s license when you get home.
