As of April, 2016:
All but five states had signed the Driver’s Licenses Compact, a pact that provides for the interstate rule of law governing driving offenses. Under state and U.S. laws a driver’s license is a privilege and not a right however by this compact California cannot revoke, suspend, or mitigate an out-of-state driver's license until an accused license holder, via due process, has been convicted of dui or other offenses; and the issuing state cannot do so either. That is, unlike a person with a California driver’s license, until a guilty verdict is delivered the defendant’s driver’s license cannot be impinged, confiscated, or suspended as there has been no proven crime. The same is true in the 45 other states that are signees of the compact.
It is possible that some law enforcement officials in California, Maine, Colorado, or elsewhere do not know this. – sources: various/ & California attorneys: Ms. Debra Hinshaw-Vierra and Ms. Jessica Graves (related legal material)…
