Many drivers erroneously believe that an out-of-state D.U.I. conviction will not adversely affect their driving privileges in Tennessee. This unfortunately is incorrect for several reasons. For one, Tennessee has a statute which states that conviction in another state for D.U.I. which has a 'similar' D.U.I. statute can be used to revoke driving privileges in Tennessee. Secondly, Tennessee's statute states that conviction in another state for D.U.I. can be used to enhance any subsequent D.U.I. conviction in Tennessee to a higher mandatory sentence.
