Answering Common Questions About Florida Driver’s License Suspensions

Especially if it is your first time facing a license suspension, you are sure to have questions. Understanding the reasons for license suspension, the processes involved and how to potentially reinstate your license is crucial for navigating this challenging situation. We provide answers that can help you make informed decisions.

Do I need an attorney to get my license reinstated?

While you do not have to have an attorney to apply for license reinstatement, you can still benefit from legal guidance during this process. A driver’s license suspension lawyer can provide legal advice, help you understand the complexities of the law and represent you in court if necessary.

What is the 10-day rule in Florida?

When a person is arrested for a DUI in Florida, they typically have 10 days to request a formal review hearing to contest the suspension of their driver’s license. If they do not request a hearing within this 10-day time frame, the suspension will generally go into effect automatically. This means that drivers must act quickly to stay on the road.

What is the process for getting a license reinstated after a suspension?

If a driver does not request an administrative hearing, they can still regain their license after serving the suspension period. The steps to reinstate their license after a suspension include:

  • Completing any court-ordered programs
  • Paying all fines and fees associated with the suspension
  • Providing proof of auto insurance
  • Applying for reinstatement

An attorney can help you ensure that you have taken the right steps to get back on the road.

How much does it cost to reinstate your license in Florida after suspension?

The cost to reinstate your license depends on your situation. Reinstating a suspended license costs $45, and reinstating a revoked license costs $75. However, the cost of reinstatement also involves a $130 administrative fee if your license suspension was related to alcohol or drug-related charges.
