What a Lawyer Can Do about Your Suspension
Florida grants individuals the right to appeal a license suspension and argue for the reinstatement of driving privileges. However, to have any success in this process, you need a strong command of the facts of your case as well as how those facts interact with the law. When you’re trying to get your license back, the stakes are incredibly high, and you do not want to risk mishandling the case by yourself. But with the help of a defense lawyer, you’ll get an experienced legal mind who knows what the court needs to hear to reinstate your license privileges. Your suspension is based on factors specific to your case, but an experienced lawyer will know the defense strategy that will work best to answer the court’s questions and provide the right reassurances. Also, your lawyer may be able to get a hardship license for you, which would allow you to do the driving that is essential to your life and let you avoid the worst consequences of serving out your suspension.

Florida suspends licenses for many different reasons, including failing to pay fines or failing to appear at a court summons related to a driving under the influence arrest. The severity of an alleged crime typically dictates the duration of the possible suspension.
A driver’s license can be suspended indefinitely if a driver fails to comply with or appear at a traffic summons, fails to pay a fine, or fails to complete court-ordered driver improvement school. Delinquency in child support can also result in indefinite license suspensions.
License suspensions are for the following periods when a driver accumulates too many points on their driving record:
- 12 points within 12 months — 30 days
- 18 points within 18 months — Three months
- 24 points within 36 months — One year
DUI offenses typically result in license revocation:
- Up to one year for a first offense not involving bodily injury
- Up to three years for an offense involving bodily injury
- A minimum five years revocation for a second offense committed within five years of prior convictions
- A minimum of ten years revocation for a third offense committed within ten years of a prior conviction
- A permanent revocation for a fourth offense
