Tons of thousands of people are driving around Florida on a suspended Driver’s License. The act of knowingly driving on a suspended License is in and of itself a crime. Any individual found guilty of knowingly driving on a Suspended Driver’s License three (3) times within a 5-year period will become Habitualized, which means that they will lose their Driver’s License for 5 years.
Conceivably an individual can be an excellent driver, have a single infraction and due to negligence or irresponsibility, wind up with criminal charges and/or a 5-year revocation of their Driver’s License. The Criminal Defense Center, P.A. has met with so many people that specifically told them that there was nothing they could do except perhaps wait one year, without any driving, and then apply for a Hardship License. They are shocked to hear that there are options to get their Driving Privileges reinstated reasonably quickly. While the process is lengthy and sometimes tedious, we have been extremely successful in restoring the driving privileges of many. As you can imagine this is not an inexpensive task, but the ability to legally drive and otherwise provide for your family is priceless.

HTO (habitual traffic offenders) charge is a third-degree felony in Florida. If charged with this type of crime, you could face up to 5 years in a state prison. You could be charged with this crime even if you didn’t know your license was suspended because you have paid prior suspended license tickets and thought your license was valid again.
If you were arrested on DUI charges, the state automatically suspends your license on the grounds that you either failed of refused a chemical test to gauge your blood alcohol level.
You have 10 days (from the date of your arrest) to contact the DMV and request a formal review of your license suspension. Legal counsel is not required, but I can help challenge the suspension by building evidence that you didn’t fail or refuse your test.
