Q: What are the consequences for Driving on a Suspended License in Florida?

A: Charges for Driving on a Suspended License are civil and criminal depending on whether or not you have knowledge of the suspension.  If you are facing a civil charge in Florida then you pay a fine.  The criminal charge includes a fine and court costs with possible incarceration. 

A 5 year suspension of your license can be a consequence that most people are unaware of.  This suspension is imposed by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV).  The suspension is imposed by 3 convictions for driving on a suspended license and/or DUI’s in a 5 year period.

The consequences for Driving on a Suspended License in Florida are far reaching with sanctions imposed by the courts and possibly by the DHSMV.  If you find yourself facing charges for driving on a suspended license call your St. Petersburg traffic defense attroneys for help.
