Thread: State to state DMV/CCW info shared?

  1. State to state DMV/CCW info shared?

    Anyone know a resource to look up which states share information regarding concealed carry permits. Specifically, I have a Texas, Utah and Nevada permit and want to know if my Texas drivers license is ran in California will any of my concealed permits show? As I understand it they will NOT show but I want to know for sure.

    Thanks

  3. Nah, they have to call in to someone in your state to pull up your info. If you're carrying in another state and get stopped by the law, it'll likely take longer before they let you go because of that reason.

  4. Midnight do you have experience with this? What I mean is, do you know if they actually call in to your state for a routine traffic stop? The reason I am asking is I am currently visiting CA and a LEO followed me for bit and appeared as though he was going to pull me over but didnt. This got my thinking about what to expect if I do get pulled over and considering the general population here seems so anti-gun, I can only imagine how some LEOs here will treat me if they pull me over with TX plates and discover I have three permits. Just like to know the possible mindset if I happen to get pulled over. I guess it does not really matter as I would conduct myself the same way either way but always good to know what is in peoples heads.

    CA LEOs use CLETS (California Law Enforcement Telecommunication System).
    CLETS does not have access to other state's CCW information.

    Unless, your TX CCW is noted on your TX DL, a CA LEO will not know about your CCW info.

    One reason why the CA LEO may have followed you for a bit, is he/she was trying to determine if you were an actual TX resident visiting CA or a CA resident with a car registered in TX.
    CA DMV is currently doing a push to ensure vechicles are properly registered. Due to high registration fees, some CA residents register their vehicles in other states. This is illegal and the current push is focusing on enforcement/compliance with properly registering vechicles.

  6. I was checked by a city policeman in an adjoining state last year. Not 100% sure of his intent but he asked how fast I was going(within city limits) and I replied "the same speed as the red Dodge pickup in front of me". I figured he saw I was out-of-state and was going to hassle me for a slight overspeed. Anyway, he took my DL to call in and when he returned to my Jeep his first words were " Do you have any firearms?". It would seem he got a notice of my CCW in addition to my license info from my home state.

    In NH There is no conection of information between the DMV or any other dispatch agency and your CCL.
    There has to be spicific need to know. LEO needs to go thru your local PD for info. If you watch any of the COPS shows on TV they always ask if your carrying anything that could hurt then, stick them or any guns. How you answer depends on the law in the state your in. As far as gun laws go here, we ALL play buy the rules.

  8. I do know for a fact in Alaska when they run your license it does pop up you have a CCW...And you are fined if you don't present both at the same time... This was back in 99 so I don't know if anything has changed....
