Driving With Suspended License in Florida

Losing your license can be frustrating, but the short-term gain you get through driving with a suspended license is certainly not worth the risk of the penalties if you get caught. Because license suspensions generally occur for serious matters such as drunk driving or medical conditions that prevent safe vehicle operation, violating the suspension is a very serious crime. If you have been accused of driving with a suspended license, please call a top Tampa DUI lawyer today.

While many people mistakenly believe that driving on a suspended licenses is just a minor traffic infringement, it is actually a misdemeanor crime and if you are convicted, this offense will stay on your criminal record through the rest of your life. Additionally, you could be sentenced to up to 60 days in jail and be required to pay $500 in fines. These consequences should be taken seriously and it is important to fight back against the charges with the help of a Tampa DUI attorney.

Many people who are convicted once continue to drive despite the extension of their license suspension. If you are caught, the penalties will become more severe and only three convictions can result in felony charges. This means you will be put in prison for up to five years, permanently lose your license, lose your right to vote, lose your right to hold office and lose your right to possess a firearm. If you get to this point, it is even more critical that you speak with a Tampa DUI lawyer as soon as possible.
