Suspended License


Driving on a suspended FL driver's license in one of the most common traffic misdemeanor charges that Stuart's Colter Law Group defends. If you are like most Martin County residents, you rely on your car to get you to work, school, church, and the grocery store, among other places. If you are caught driving on a suspended license, and it can be shown that you had knowledge of the suspension, you can be arrested, your car can be towed from scene, and you could receive additional citations that will hinder your ability drive in the future. As traffic defense lawyers in South Florida, our attorneys can defend you against the pending charges and guide you through the necessary steps in restoring your driver's license.

Driving on a Cancelled, Revoked, or Suspended Driver's License in the State of Florida

In Florida, your driver's license can be suspended for:

  • Failure to pay a traffic citation
  • Missing a court appearance
  • Not keeping your vehicle insured
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  • Refusing to submit to a breath test
  • Failure to pay child support
  • Shoplifting convictions

If you have two prior convictions for driving on a suspended license or have been classified as a habitual traffic offender, the prosecutor could charge you with a felony. If charged as a habitual offender, the prosecutor no longer needs to prove that you had knowledge that your license was suspended. You will not be allowed to drive your car away form the scene due to the suspended license and the car will most likely be towed causing further costs and inconvenience. After yu are booked at the county jail, you will be given a mandatory court date. The traffic defense lawyers of the Colter Law Group in Stuart can guide you through the process of getting your license reinstated. It is always you your advantage to have a valid license before your mandatory court date.

Please note that receiving your D-6 clearance does not reinstate your license. You must visit your local DMV office and follow the instructions of the DMV.
