Before the DMV or DHSMV (Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles) suspends your drivers license as a Habitual Traffic Offender, you will receive a letter. When you get the letter telling you that your Florida drivers license is going to be suspended, call a Jacksonville drivers license lawyer at 20 Miles Law for help and a free consultation. You should call a Jacksonville lawyer immediately at (904) 564-2525 once you receive this letter from the DMV. Obtain a copy of your driving record from the DMV, because your Jacksonville lawyer will want to see it. Many people ignore this letter and continue to drive on a suspended license. This is a bad idea and will only cause you to make your Florida driving record even worse.
Jacksonville habitual traffic offender suspensions are often referred to as HTO suspensions. An HTO suspension will cause your Florida drivers license to be suspended for 5 years. While it may seem hopeless, it is not. At 20 Miles Law, a Jacksonville traffic lawyer with experience fixing Florida drivers licenses will work on your case. You may be able to have your Florida drivers license reinstated fairly quickly. Your drivers license can be reinstated if you remove past Jacksonville driving on a suspended license convictions from your record. Most people have a habitual traffic offender suspension, because they have had 3 driving on a suspended or revoked license convictions within 5 years. If you are able to go back and erase one of those convictions, you will not have 3 driving on a suspended license convictions anymore. Once you removed a conviction, you should be able to reinstate your Florida drivers license. This is assuming that you do not have any other traffic infractions, child support obligations, or criminal charges that would suspend your license.
