MY FLORIDA DRIVER’S LICENSE WAS SUSPENDED: WHAT SHOULD I DO? CALL TROY & SCHWARTZ, LLC LAWYERS- 305-279-4740 OFFICES IN MIAMI

In Florida, as it is in all states, driving is a privilege and not a right.  To this end, your driving privileges can be suspended or revoked as a penalty for a number of reasons by taking away or invalidating your Florida driver’s license.  One of the most common reasons a driver’s license is suspended in Florida is being arrested for or convicted of driving under the influence (DUI), but it can also be suspended for having too many traffic violations on your driving record, or for failing to meet specific financial obligations, such as child support.

A suspended driver’s license is not final.  You do have options to either appeal the suspension or attempt to reinstate your license before the suspension’s original end date.

REINSTATING A SUSPENDED LICENSE

If your Florida driver’s license was suspended before you could file for an appeal, you will not be able to drive freely until your license is reinstated.  For most cases, reinstatement only becomes an option after the original suspension duration is completed, but it may be possible to have it reinstated earlier under specific circumstances.

IN ORDER TO HAVE YOUR LICENSE REINSTATED, YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO:

. Attend any and all necessary court dates, directly related to the suspension

. Completely pay all fines and fees associated with the suspension and reinstatement, as well as those related to child support payments.

. Take traffic school or DUI school courses and pass any administered exams.

.  Purchase or prove that you have purchased bodily injury liability insurance.

. Enroll in drug or alcohol rehabilitation treatment, especially if you have multiple DUI’S on your driving record.

. Receive corrective lenses and prove your vision has improved if your license was suspended due to being legally blind.

. Serve any jail time or probationary periods if license suspension was related to a criminal conviction.

It is highly recommended that you apply for a Florida hardship driver’s license if your license is suspended.
