Fort Lauderdale Suspended License Lawyer

Florida Driving on a Suspended License Laws

In Florida, driving privileges may be revoked for several reasons. When obtaining a driver's license in Florida, an individual is consenting to the state's "implied consent" laws, meaning that they have inherently agreed to submit to certain requests—like adhering to chemical and/or breath tests in lieu of suspected drunk driving.

Other unlawful acts may result in license revocation or suspension, as well, including:

  • Failing to appear in court
  • Traffic violations/failing to pay traffic citation
  • Drug possession conviction/DUI conviction
  • Failing to pay child support
  • Financial responsibility suspension

Failing to adhere to these laws may result in serious consequences, but continuing to drive without a valid license will only make the penalties that much more severe.

If you are facing arrest for driving on a suspended license in Broward County, FL, contact Hager & Schwartz, P.A. today!

Penalties for Driving on a Suspended License in Florida

Driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor in Florida. A conviction may result in 6 months – 1 year in jail. However, if you have a previous conviction for the same crime, the penalties increase. In fact, a third conviction will result in a felony charge, with penalties of up to 5 years in state prison if you are convicted.

Many individuals are arrested and charged with this crime and were completely unaware that their license was suspended. When traffic tickets remain unpaid, it may have resulted in a suspended license. The individual is then pulled over for a traffic violation and is charged with the serious crime of driving with a suspended license.

Building Defenses for Suspended License Charges in FL

One way that you can make sure that you have a valid license is to check your driving record when in doubt. It will show any driving points against you, as well as whether or not you have any license-related matters that need to be resolved. Or, if you are in the middle of other legal troubles that require your presence in court and/or require you to pay child support, for example, enlisting the help of a Fort Lauderdale defense attorney will help you to keep all of your affairs in order so that you can prevent any unnecessary penalties.
