Not always. If you have a license in one state but commit an offense in another. That second state can suspend your privilege to drive within its borders regardless of the status of your license in your home state.

It is the "full faith and credit" clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article IV, section 1). Each state will recognize another state's driver’s license and allow you to drive on their roads with that license. Thus, if are a CA resident and you have a CA driver's license, you can drive using that license in CO. You would not have to get a separate license from CO. However, if you commit a traffic offense in CO, CO could then suspend your right to drive in CO regardless of whether CA suspends or revokes your license for that offense. In other words, while CO would initially recognize the CA license under the full faith and credit provision of the Constitution, you could lose your right to drive there by committing offenses in that state.
