I am curious to know if you can apply for a new PR driver license if you have a suspended CO license? Does PR have access to your driver license info from the rest of the US?

PR, like any State or Territory, is mandated by Federal law to check with the National Drivers Register before issuing a driver's license so yes, they have access to the record of your suspension in CO. You would need to have that suspension cleared before getting a license.

In fact part of the process of getting a driver license is for you to provide the driving history from the state of your origin.

And if you DON'T provide it, they issue you a license and find out you weren't on the up and up your license will be revoked. Just saying!

the actual answer to this is that no Puerto Rico does NOT have access to your colorado records! They only have access to Puerto Rico records...however...this is why in order to obtain a drivers liscense here you must supply them with a driving record from whatever state you had a liscense in...because they dont have access to that info on their computer. But if you can not supply them with a driving record (say you never had a liscense before) then you probably can still get one but be prepared for it to be a long complicated process. And as stated above .. if you do manage to get a liscense in puerto rico by telling them you never had one and for whatever reason they later find out you did it may get ugly for you!
Since Puerto Rico is a part of the U.S. i expect eventually they will get caught up with the times and have computer information that is connected!

What happens in the unlikely event that you get caught driving with no license in PR?

I have to agree with gemstone. I know PLENTY of people in PR that drive without a license on a daily basis. It can actually work to your advantage. If you have a license and get pulled over, you get a ticket. If you don't have one, the cop is supposed to arrest you, take you to court, wait several hours with you so that a judge can slap you in the wrist with a fine. Most cops don't feel like wasting a shift in court, waiting and waiting and waiting, so they'll rather give you a warning and let you go.
