What Is a D6 Suspension?
Facing a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) can be one of the most stressful and frightening experiences of a person’s life, especially if they’ve never been accused of a crime before. DUIs tend to be punished severely in many states, including Florida. If you are convicted of a DUI, not only could you face high fines, but you could be forced to spend time in jail, receive a license suspension, or even lose your job as a commercial motor vehicle driver.
Typically, a driver will have his or her license suspended for a specific amount of time after a DUI conviction. A first-time DUI conviction, for example, will lead to a suspension of 180 days to 360 days. You may also be required to attend traffic school. If you fail to pay any fines or fail to participate in court-ordered education, you will need to pay the DMV a $60 D6 suspension reinstatement fee.
D6 suspensions can also be tricky if they occur when someone receives a traffic ticket as part of a DUI charge and ends up going to prison. After they get out, they realize they cannot get their license back because of the previously unpaid ticket.
