How Do I Check If My Florida License Is Suspended?

August 23, 2016

The state of Florida suspends driver’s licenses for many reasons ranging for points violations, DUI, habitual traffic offenses or even medical and vision issues. Finding out if your license is suspended is easier than you may think. The best place to start is the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles website (link included below) From there, all you need to do is to enter a driver’s license number.

The checker returns any information about driving restrictions and other things like eligibility for driving school, the type of license. It will clearly tell you the status of any restrictions and why. It’s possible unpaid tickets are the culprit. In some cases, clients have received violations that they never even knew about from red-light cameras!

If your driver’s license is suspended here is what you should do:

  1. STOP DRIVING IMMEDIATELY – DWLS can be a serious charge and if you get pulled over, it will only make the situation more complicated.  Florida Statute 322.34 makes Driving While License Suspended (DWLS) a misdemeanor offense in most cases. DWLS convictions typically result in monetary penalties and incarceration. A first offense can result in up to 60 days in jail, subsequent offenses carry a penalty of a year in jail and $1,000 fine. You definitely don’t want that.
  2. IDENTIFY THE ISSUE – Armed with the information from the DMV’s checker start gathering any tickets you received. If you paid them, find the receipts. Anything you have that can help our traffic ticket lawyers get your license back quicker.
