Driving with a Suspended License can be charged as either a traffic, misdemeanor or felony in the state
of Florida. If you are caught driving with a suspended without knowledge, it is a purely traffic offense.
However, if you are charged with driving with a suspended license with knowledge, it can be a
misdemeanor depending on your previous criminal record.
Some of the ways that your license can be suspended is accumulating too many points in your driving
record, being convicted of certain crimes, failure to pay child support and others. For example, if you
receive 12 or more points within 12 months, you will get a 30 days suspension.
It is important to understand the seriousness of these charges and how you handle them because three
charges could lead to you becoming a habitual traffic offender (HTO) in Florida. If you are deemed a
Habitual Traffic Offender, you will get a five year suspension of your license in the state of Florida.
Driving with a suspended license is a serious criminal traffic offense. Such offense can be charged as a
felony if you have previously faced forcible felony charges in the past and the previous driver's license
suspensions were not based on financial difficulties. In any event, you are still facing serious penalties
in terms of your ability to drive and your freedom.
Your driver's license is not something you should put in jeopardy. Without having a valid Florida
driver's license, it will be extremely difficult to go to work and make a living. In certain case, we can
help you apply for a hardship license if your driver;s license has been suspended.
