Do driver's license points transfer from an old license in one state to a new license in a new state?

Frankly, there was a time not too long ago that, even though it was supposed to happen, because of operational issues between States and departments, it didn't always occur. Now, with computers and national databases, the concern for DUI/DWI and other drivers jumping state to leave their past behind, it virtually always does. No. A new license will not have accrued points from another state, but the the insurance penalties, if any, will not change. Shared information relates to persons who have had their license suspended or revoked for whatever reason.
