Reinstating Your License in Florida

Your Driver’s License Is Important; We Can Help Reinstate It


Many do not realize how valuable a driver’s license is until they lose the privilege to drive. When your driver’s license is suspended, you cannot drive to work or the grocery store, and you cannot drive your children anywhere. With a suspended driver’s license, you must rely on others (including public transportation) to drive you.

But your driver’s license can be reinstated if the underlying problem that caused the suspension is addressed. Tampa-based Florida Ticket Firm and its experienced traffic lawyers are familiar with the legal steps and administrative process that must be followed to get someone’s license reintstated. We are experienced, insightful and skilled negotiators.

“Florida Ticket Firm helps people with suspended Florida driver’s licenses to attempt to get the suspension removed and to regain their driving privileges.”

Serious Consequences Can Arise

Driving with a suspended driver’s license is a crime. If caught, you face an arrest and jail – on top of continuing to have your driver’s license suspended potentially for a lot longer period.

There are many reasons someone could end up with a suspended driver’s license. They include:

  • Failure to pay a civil penalty
  • Failure to appear for a traffic court hearing
  • Failure to pay child support
  • A conviction for writing a worthless check
  • A conviction for shoplifting
  • A conviction for stealing gasoline
  • A conviction for a traffic violation causing serious personal injury or death

It’s problematic and inconvenient to have your driver’s license suspended. It’s incapacitating to have your freedom suspended and to be put in jail. You don’t want to turn a bad driving record into a criminal record. You don’t want to turn a failure to meet an obligation into obligatory jail time. And always remember, do not drive with a suspended driver’s license and risk jail time.

How to Reinstate a Suspended License in Florida

There are several ways your Florida driver’s license reinstated:

  • Pay any outstanding fines or fees related to the suspension
  • Complete any court-ordered requirements, such as community service or a driver improvement course
  • Provide proof of completion of any required treatment, such as a substance abuse program or a DUI school
  • Provide proof of insurance
  • Attend a DMV hearing or court hearing, if required
  • Apply for a hardship license, which allows you to drive for limited purposes such as work or school
  • Wait out the suspension period and pay a reinstatement fee at the end of the suspension period
  • Resolve any outstanding legal issues or warrants related to the suspension

It’s important to note that the specific requirements for reinstating a suspended driver’s license in Florida may vary depending on the reason for the suspension and other factors. Therefore, it’s recommended to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer for suspension of driver’s licenses or the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to determine the appropriate steps to take for your particular situation.
