The Non-Resident Violators Compact (NRVC) is an agreement among 44 (Alaska, California, Michigan, Montana, Oregon, and Wisconsin are not members) states regarding traffic tickets and summonses that have been issued to drivers who live outside the state where the violation occurred. The NRVC is a system for the member states to uniformly process traffic violations of non-resident drivers.
The NRVC provides that if a visiting driver receives a moving traffic violation ticket and the driver fails to take care of the ticket (by failing to appear in court, pay the fine amount, or adhere to requirements as specified in the ticket or summons), then the home state will suspend the driver’s license until the driver takes care of the outstanding ticket. Suspension of the license in the driver’s home state will remain in effect as long as the ticket remains outstanding.

Each state’s motor vehicle agency which is a member of the Non-Resident Violators Compact (an agreement among participating states) has agreed to suspend the violator’s driving privilege in the driver’s home state until the outstanding ticket has been resolved:
|Any unpaid Civil Traffic Infraction traffic ticket.|
If you have found out that your driver’s license has been suspended in your home state due to an unpaid or outstanding traffic ticket in Colorado, you must resolve the outstanding ticket before you can reinstate your driving privileges in your home state.
