Delaware Drivers with Pennsylvania Traffic Tickets

Delaware Drivers with Pennsylvania Traffic Tickets

As a Delaware driver who has just received a traffic violation in Pennsylvania, you must be aware that Pennsylvania will notify Delaware of the traffic violation. Delaware and Pennsylvania are contracted under the Driver License Compact (DLC). Under this agreement, information between the two states can be exchanged in association to a traffic violation.

Delaware places points onto a driving record based off of the severity of the traffic violation. Moving Violations, for example, are not considered under Delaware law to be severe enough to acquire points onto your Delaware driving record. Let's say that you are a Delaware driver who has just received a speeding ticket in Pennsylvania. You, as the Delaware driver, will not acquire points on your driving record based off of this moving violation. Receiving a DUI in Pennsylvania, however, is considered a severe traffic violation under Delaware law. Points will be added onto your Delaware driving record if you, as a Delaware driver, are cited with a DUI in Pennsylvania.

Receiving a Traffic Violation in or out of the state of Delaware is still recorded onto your driving record. Even if points were not added onto your driving record based off of your traffic violation, it is still noted onto your driving record. This information will be easily accessible to law enforcement the next time you are pulled over for a traffic offence in Delaware or in any other state.
