Default Suspended drivers license in usa

What if someone has a suspended license in say, for the sake of argument, the US. and there moving to Dubai soon, would the government know of this infraction through their computer system? Also if that person had a state ID that almost exactly looked like a regular license and tried to get license in that country, and got caught what kind of trouble would they be in? I was just wondering because my friend and I have deferent options on the matter. Not that I know or condone that sort of behavior.

Very cagily put there sir... and not that any of us would condone such behavior... to answer the first part on does the UAE track you down to your home state in the states? Most likely not unless they are given for suspicion... having said that, if I were to desire to commit some crime or fraud, there are several places on this planet I would NOT want to do so in... PRC, Singapore, Soveitski Russia and any city/state within the UAE o and Saudi Arabia.

NOT. Whatever your gig is sir, you do not of course need a drivers lic here to gain entry or live here or work here. But if there is some shenanigans in documents presented to the government authorities and they discover that... google up "criminal behavior and punishment in the uae' and you will discover that THIS is not the place to land in front of a Judge.

Don't ask... don't tell.

I drove in France for a year with a suspended Australian license and nobody knew, cared or could be bothered.

Just for the record, Sabby here doesn't live in Dubai so he won't be around to bail you out should you get into any sort of trouble

"Also if that person had a state ID that almost exactly looked like a regular license and tried to get license in that country, and got caught what kind of trouble would they be in?"

hm! Sounds like what you can buy at the amusement park or by the corner drug store in Los Angeles from Mario from the barrio...

I agree on UAE isn't going to call your local state and even if they tried, that state aint gonna give up info to any schmuck who calls... it would have to be an official police request or government request.

BUT, handing over something fake as means to get something real is a diff story to me and might land a bubba where he sure doesn't want to be. And can the police or government make that request upon report of accident or serious injury no matter who as at fault? O yes they could.

Just something to think over with care. Length of time you get away with something is no sure bet against Murphy's Law.

Come to UAE, pass required tests as if you have no license, and move on with life.

Don't fraudulently try to exchange state ID for drivers license. Most likely, they will just turn you away...but if they decide to take you to task, you are screwed.

Try it on as much as you like in countries where you stand a chance of either getting treated fairly with respect to your rights and, a fair trial but DO NOT try a pull a gig like that in countries like UAE, Thailand etc unless of course you've heard that the Bangkok Hilton is now providing beds and toilets now.

So basically if a person wants a license in Dubai, just go and get a new one like they lived in NYC all their life and never drove before in their life? That was discussed in our, theoretical round table discussion, so how much, how many hours,days. for a license there?

In theory, you can go get a license in the usa if you can pass the test once you are of a certain age.

May not be 'right' but is assumed that as an american, you would of learned to drive in high school and gotten your license during that time.

Not sure what expats have to do/prove when coming to the usa to get a license. But honestly, think not a lot, as many mexicans just go in and get a license from the dmv exchanging the same way in Texas as many people are legal and drive back and forth and in theory makes it easier on them to have a usa drivers license.
