Has your license been suspended? To address the situation and get it resolved you’ll first need to figure out why it was suspended, assuming you don’t already know. The reasons may include failing to pay a traffic fine, receiving too many point, or driving under the influence (DUI). The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) will suspend your license for a certain amount of time based on the severity of your offense.
Having your license reinstated will depend on your offense. A traffic summons or failure to pay a fine means you’ll need to provide proof that you’ve complied with the necessary traffic summons, paid the fine, and attended any traffic school that may have been mandated by the court. If you are convicted of a DUI, you may also need to enroll and complete a DUI course treatment should it be required and prove that you have insurance covering bodily liability and injury. If your license was revoked because of poor vision, you’ll need to submit an eye exam report showing that you meet the minimum vision requirements. If you accumulated too many points you may need to take an exam and submit proof that you’ve improved after enrolling in a driving course.
You should also be aware that you’ll need to pay a $60 fee to have your license reinstated.
