Driving with a Suspended License?

Speak with Hager & Schwartz, P.A.

Driving with a suspended license is actually a serious criminal offense. If you or someone you know was pulled over and cited for driving with a suspended license in Miami-Dade County, or the surrounding areas in Florida, an attorney at our firm can help you fight these charges and therefore avoid serious penalties from a conviction. At times, you may not even be aware that your license has been suspended because of a failure to pay traffic tickets or a similar situation. You are then pulled over for a simple traffic violation and find that you are facing criminal charges for driving with a suspended license.

To find out for certain what the status of your driver’s license is, visit the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV). This is the court that has the ability to suspend your license. You will likely have to complete a request for personal information and pay a small fee to the County Clerk’s office. If you get your license suspended in Florida, your license is suspended in all other states as well. There is the possibility of hardship licenses for some, which allow for limited driving privileges. You may have been arrested for driving outside of the special provisions listed in your hardship license.

Penalties in Florida

Most often, driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor offense in Florida. Imprisonment for a conviction may last from 6 months to 1 year. However, a third conviction for this offense may actually result in felony charges, where you may face up to 5 years in state prison if convicted.

A Miami criminal defense attorney at our firm can help you if you have been accused of driving without a license or driving with a suspended license. We have experience in this area of law and understand what defense strategies are workable in helping you avoid a conviction and therefore serious penalties.
