The BMV in Ohio will be notified of any out of state DUI convictions through the Interstate Compact Agreement.
You will also be suspended in Ohio because of the out of state DUI. You will receive a written notice from the Ohio BMV so it is important to have your current address on file with the BMV.
Once you receive the notice of suspension, you will need a lawyer to help explain the best way to file an appeal. The suspension is for six months and just filing the appeal will not stay the suspension.
To avoid the suspension or to request driving privileges for work you will need a lawyer right away. In fact it is advisable to contact a lawyer as soon as convicted of the out of state DUI.
