Suspended DL

DRIVING OFFENSES / DWLSR

DWLSR

In the State of Florida a Driver’s License is considered a privilege, not a right. As such, there are multiple ways that a person can have their driving privilege suspended, revoked, or cancelled, such as failing to comply with traffic infractions, writing worthless checks, delinquent child support, criminal traffic violations, criminal drug charges or failing to comply with insurance and registration responsibilities.

When your Driver’s License is suspended, revoked, or cancelled for any of the above reasons, the DHSMV will send you written notification by U.S. mail to your last known address. Notice is complete upon the expiration of 20 days after deposit of the notification in the United States mail. Therefore, even if you never received the notification, you are presumed to have been notified by virtue of the mailing.

If you have been caught driving while your Drivers License has been suspended or revoked, you can be arrested for either DWLSR with knowledge or receive a ticket for DWLSR without knowledge. If you received a ticket for DWLRS without knowledge you have been charged with a moving violation. This means that if found guilty, you will have 3 points added to your driving record and will be assessed fines and court costs.

If you are arrested for DWLSR with knowledge your charge can range anywhere from a misdemeanor to a felony, where penalties can include jail time, prison time, court costs, and fines.

If you receive 3 or more convictions of DWLSR or DUI in a five year period, you will be automatically categorized as a “Habitual Traffic Offender”, and lose your Drivers License for 5 years. If you are already labeled as a Habitual Traffic Offender, we may be able to vacate one of your prior conviction and remove the “HTO” status from your license.
