Revoked and Suspended Driver’s License in Florida
It is a criminal offense to drive with a revoked or suspended driver’s license in Florida. The charge might be a felony or misdemeanor depending on the incidents leading to the driver’s license suspension. Repeat violations may also affect the charge. Your driver’s license might be suspended for various reasons such as driving while intoxicated, driving without insurance, refusing to take a breathalyzer test, supplying fraudulent information during your driver’s license application, and ignoring a traffic ticket payment.
What is a Revocation Versus a Suspension of Your License?
Driving is considered a privilege by the state of Florida. If your driver’s license is revoked, your privilege of driving on state roads is terminated. You will have to go before a judge and subject yourself to an investigation before you start the process of obtaining your license again. When your license is suspended, however, it is just a temporary revocation for a court determined amount of time.
Actions to Take After Your License is Suspended
- Surrender your license in your court hearing or to the nearest DMV.
- DO NOT DRIVE.
- Apply for a hardship license so you’re able to drive to work, school, and church.
- DO NOT DRIVE.
- Take necessary court ordered courses to get your license reinstated.
- DO NOT DRIVE.
- Check with DHSMV to make sure your records are updated after completing court ordered requisites.
Applying for the Hardship License
Applying for your hardship license is easy. As long as you meet the court-ordered criteria, your license can be reinstated. If you’re found guilty of bodily injury, habitual violations, or a death, you will have to wait one year after the court designated date to file for a hardship license with the Florida Administrative Reviews office. After you complete their test and pay the reinstatement fees, you’ll be asked to show proof of your Florida 12-hour Advanced Driver Improvement Course.
