Driving With a Suspended License
Criminal Law in Orlando and throughout Central Florida
Losing the privilege to drive can make things difficult. When your driver’s license is suspended, it quickly becomes challenging to do everyday tasks like bringing children to school, going to work and getting groceries. At the Orlando, Florida Umansky Law Firm, we understand that you made a mistake while driving with a suspended license, and we want to help you get back-on-track by finding the best resolution for your case.
Penalties for Driving with a Suspended License
Driving with a suspended license is a traffic violation that may cause you to be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony. “Driving while license is suspended or revoked,” or DWLSR, carries some hefty penalties, which may include:
- Jail time
- Revoked license for up to five years
- Vehicle impoundment
- Habitual traffic offender designation
If you receive three DWLSR convictions within five years, you can be charged with a felony and designated as a habitual traffic offender, which can mean jail or prison time, license revocation, severe fines and a bad driving record.
If you are found to be driving with a suspended license while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and if your license was suspended because of a prior DUI offense, your driver’s license may be taken away from you for a long time.
If you cause an accident that results in someone’s death or injury while driving with a suspended license, you may be charged with a third degree felony, a serious charge that could mean five years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
