Can a state suspend an out of state license?

Yes, it is possible.

The state that you were arrested or ticketed in can send

documents to the department of transporation in your state

requesting suspension if the offense warranted it. The thing that

has to be looked at is "was the offense committed in the current

state a suspendable offense in your state." If not, your state may

not suspend your license. But you may be restricted from driving in

the offense state. This is a common occurrence with OWI/DWI

convictions, and most states will suspend your license for a

conviction on this offense in another state.
