Typically when you get a driver's license in a new state the tickets that appear on the old driver's license do not transfer. Accidents do however stay on the CLUE database and will follow you everywhere. Technically if have tickets in another state and don't disclose them to the new insurance company in the new state you are making a material misrepresentation on the application which has the potential to get a claim denied at some point in time. I personally don't know of that happening but there is always the extreme case.

In most cases it is not local police that report points on a license to the insurance company. The points assessed on a driver's license are reported to the state by the courts after the court decides punishment. The state then reports points to an insurance company. This could take 2 to 3 weeks, unless the license is immediately revoked, then the state is informed within 1 to 3 days.
