A: Yes, PA and NJ are part of the Compact:

What is the Driver License Compact (DLC)?

A: The DLC is a compact among 46 member states to maximize law enforcement efforts nationwide.

The major provisions of the DLC, which member states are committed to uphold and enforce, are:

• The “one driver license” concept, which requires the surrender of an out-of-state driver’s license

when application for a new license is made;

• The “one driver record” concept, which requires that a complete driver record be maintained in

the driver’s state of residence to determine driving eligibility in the home state, as well as for his

nonresidence operator’s privilege in other jurisdictions;

• Reporting of all traffic convictions and license suspension/revocations of out-of-state drivers tothe

home state licensing agency, as well as other appropriate information; and

• The assurance of uniform and predictable treatment of drivers by treating offenses committed in

other states as though they have been committed in the home state.
