How Did My Drivers License Get Suspended?

June 10, 2013

One thing we hear a lot at The Ticket Clinic is “I didn’t know my license was suspended.”  Generally people come to us after they have been pulled over and at that point, the potential penalties for driving with a suspended license can be more severe.

Here are some infractions that commonly result in a suspended license:

1) Failing to comply with a traffic summons, appear on a traffic summons or pay a fine.

2) Failing to complete court ordered traffic school or traffic school you elected to take but failed to attend.

3) Inadequate vision.

4) Obtaining too many points on your license – 12 points in 12 months, 18 points in 18 months or 24 points in 36 months will earn you a suspension anywhere from 30 days to one year.

5) Failing to maintain proper auto insurance.  Florida has minimum car insurance requirements: at least $10,000 of coverage for personal injury protection and $10,000 in property damage liability.

6) Failing to pay child support.

If you have a suspended driver’s license and have questions about reinstating it, consider contacting The Ticket Clinic.  Since 1987 we have been handling only traffic-related offenses, including DUI.  Call us at 1.800.CITATION.
