Most states states share information about license revocations and suspensions. This is accordinging to the terms the "Interstate Driver's License Compact". Accordingly, if someone with a revoked/suspended license applies for one in another state, teirr revocation/suspension will be found due to the sharing of information via the centralized national database.
