Has your driver’s license been suspended? If so, then you absolutely cannot drive until your driving privilege has been reinstated. While not being able to drive may be a huge inconvenience, it is not worth the risk of getting caught.
If you are caught driving with a suspended license in Florida, then depending on the circumstances, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony with potential jail time, significant fines, further suspensions or possibly even a revocation of your license.
Trying to get your suspended driver’s license reinstated is a multi-step process with the first step being to determine why your license was suspended. The following are the most likely reasons why your driver’s license was suspended;
– failure to appear in court or pay fines (this is sometimes referred to as a “D-6 suspension”);
– an accumulation of too many points on your license within a designated period of time;
– a DUI’
– a penalty that arose out of a separate case or lawsuit;
– Failure to pay child support.
In any of these scenarios, it’s in your best interests to contact a Miami criminal traffic attorney or a Fort Lauderdale criminal traffic attorney since it’s very difficult to correct a suspended driver’s license problem on your own.
