As a Jacksonville drivers license lawyer, I have represented people with all kinds of Florida drivers license problems. Usually, a problem with your Florida drivers license starts with a Florida speeding ticket. If you get a Florida speeding ticket or a Jacksonville traffic citation, your Florida drivers license will be suspended. The more unpaid Jacksonville traffic tickets that you receive, the worse your Florida driving record will be. In many Jacksonville traffic ticket cases, just paying the Florida speeding ticket can also be very damaging for your Florida driving record, because it causes you to have too many points on your Jacksonville drivers license.
In many Jacksonville driving on a suspended or revoked drivers licenses cases, the Florida driver has a suspended license because of unpaid tickets.

They continue to rack up more and more driving on a suspended license tickets in Florida, which will hurt them in the future.
