It depends on the state, but generally no. Misdemeanors are simple and harmless enough to not have to show up on your record. Felonies and such things should be the only thing on your record. Example: if you go to California, and get pulled over, the only thing that will probably show up on your record is whether you've been charged with a felony or something of that nature.

Yes. If you were to get pulled over and they run your license, it will show up. You can't get a new license until the old warrants from the other state are taken care of.

In almost all cases they will show up. States share the data with other states and insurance companies.

The landlord will win by a default judgment. In some states, such as California, you must still present your case to the judge even though the tenant did not show up. In other states, such as Nevada, if the tenant does not show up you are awarded a default judgment and do not speak with the judge at all.

Yes, if the background check taps the FBI fingerprint database. Often, local agencies only report in-state charges, which is why they will ask if you have lived in other states.

Yes, arrests in other states show up in NLETS database.
