Driving While License Suspended
If you’re caught driving with a suspended license in Florida, you can be charged with a crime and face permanent revocation of your driver’s license. Our experienced defense attorneys can help you avoid a license suspension or other serious consequences.
What happens if you caught driving with a suspended license?
If you are caught driving with a suspended license in Florida, you can face charges under Florida Statute 322.34. If you are aware of the cancellation, suspension, or revocation of your license and you drive on a state highway, you can be charged with a second-degree misdemeanor for a first offense, a first-degree misdemeanor for a second offense, or a third-degree felony for a third offense.
The prosecutor has to prove you had knowledge of the suspension. This proof can come from a prior citation for driving while suspended, or from admitting you knew you had no license. There is proof you knew of the suspension if you received notice, or if the suspension appears in the department’s records.
What are your options?
You have many options if you receive this violation, including pleading guilty and paying the consequences, arguing you did not know your license was suspended, or negotiating a plea bargain to reduce your charges and consequences. A Florida defense attorney will help guide you to make the best choice for your case.
