Texas Transportation Code
Sec. § 523.005
Effect of Conviction


The licensing authority in the home state, for the purpose of suspension, revocation, cancellation, denial, disqualification, or limitation of the privilege to operate a motor vehicle, shall give the same effect to the conduct reported pursuant to Section 523.004 as it would if such conduct had occurred in the home state in the case of conviction for:


manslaughter or negligent homicide resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle;


driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcoholic beverages or a narcotic to a degree which renders the driver incapable of safely driving a motor vehicle;


any felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used; or


failure to stop and render aid or information in the event of a motor vehicle accident resulting in the death or personal injury of another.


As to other convictions reported pursuant to this compact, the licensing authority in the home state shall give such effect to the conduct as is provided by the laws of the home state.


If the laws of a state do not provide for offenses or violations denominated or described in precisely the words employed in Subsection (a), those offenses or violations of a substantially similar nature and the laws of that state shall be understood to contain such provisions as may be necessary to ensure that full force and effect is given to this compact.
Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1995.
