It happens all the time. Someone is driving their car and gets pulled over for a routine traffic violation. Suddenly, the driver discovers they are driving with a suspended license! Many people have no idea their license had been suspended and find themselves in serious trouble!
Paying off a citation for Driving While License Suspended or Revoked (DWLSR) may cause your Driver’s License to become suspended sometimes for five years as a habitual suspension. We can often not only help get your suspended license charge dropped or reduced, but often get your Driver’s License back even if there are habitual suspensions.
In Florida, you need to have a Driver’s License due to the lack of mass transit. Without a license and the ability to drive to and from work, you could compound your problems by losing your job. DWLSR with Knowledge is a criminal charge and you can be arrested on the spot. DWLSR without Knowledge is a civil infraction. However, both can cause a five-year Driver’s License suspension if convicted. Some DWLSRs can even be made a felony! Third degree felonies can carry a sentence of up to five years in prison!
Never admit to a law enforcement officer charging you with this crime that you were aware that your license was suspended.
Suspended licenses are not minor or petty problems. They can often become serious and long-term issues if not dealt with properly. Call or contact us for a free consultation by phone or in our office in Port Richey, Florida.
