Someone has told me some things that seem to conflict, and I'm hoping someone can clear these up for me.
She moved to FL, and claims to have gotten a CDL license - without a driving test. Then she changed it and said she got a CDL permit - I'm assuming that's the big rig equivalent of a learner's permit for a teen. In and of itself, that doesn't seem all that weird to me.
Here's the part that I don't get. She has a suspended license back in MD, for failure to pay child support. I'm confused for two reasons:
1. I was under the impression that when you get a driver's license in a state, you have to surrender the license from the previous state. But according to her, she has the CDL permit, but is currently in MD and can't drive anywhere because of the suspension.
2. If her license is suspended, wouldn't they refuse to give her the new license?
I've never had a suspended license, and I've also never moved out of state, so I'm not sure how it all works. Can anyone explain this to me? Is there a way it makes sense, or is she just making things up as she goes along here?
(I have no idea if I put this in the right category.)

I have a friend who had a suspended licenses in one state but moved and was able to get a licenses in another state. This was a few years ago though, so things may have changed.
