AS 28.20.160. Application to Nonresidents, Unlicensed Drivers, Unregistered Vehicles and Accidents in Other States.

(a) If a driver or owner of a vehicle subject to registration under the laws of this state involved in an accident in this state does not have a license or registration in this state, then the driver may not be licensed, nor may the owner register a vehicle in this state until the person complies with the requirements of this chapter to the extent necessary if, at the time of the accident, the person had held a license or been the owner of a vehicle registered in this state.

(b) When a nonresident's operating privilege is suspended under AS 28.20.090 the department shall send a certified copy of the record of the action to the official in charge of the issuance of licenses and registration certificates in the state in which the nonresident resides, if the law of the other state provides for action similar to that provided for in (c) of this section.

(c) Upon receiving certification that the operating privilege of a resident of this state has been suspended or revoked in another state under a law providing for its suspension or revocation for failure to deposit security for the payment of judgments arising out of an accident under circumstances that would require the department to suspend a nonresident's operating privilege if the accident had occurred in this state, the department shall suspend the license of the resident. The suspension continues until the resident furnishes evidence of compliance with the law of the other state relating to the deposit of security.
