A: I presume you have suffered a suspension, which is why you want to apply for a CDL in another state. As a rule, suspensions and other entries onto your driver license in one state are respected by other states through what is known as the "interstate compact".

The compact effectively makes sure your driving record follows you from one state to another. Therefore, if you have a suspension in Texas, applying for a license in Oklahoma will mean they will honor the Texas suspension.
