The likelihood is not high. Many states share information about suspensions and license revocations under the Interstate Compact Agreement.  So as long as it qualifies as a reason to report, it will impede you from getting the other state's license.   It is a centralized data base so hen they run your info it will show up.  DMV in the new state will also run your info and then see it as well.
