Never Plead Guilty or No Contest to a Driving While License Suspended (DWLS) Charge Without First Talking to an Experienced Tampa Criminal Attorney.
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DMV) has an extensive electronic database that keeps track of every traffic ticket you receive. The fines associated with traffic tickets can be costly however they pale in comparison to the future consequences they can have on your ability to drive in Florida. All moving violations carry points which can add up very quickly. An experienced Tampa suspended license attorney can help you avoid those points, and keep you on the road.
Failing to pay outstanding tickets may also lead to a suspension of your Florida driver’s license. Reinstatement fees are costly and the penalties are severe if you are caught driving in Florida without a valid Florida driver’s license. If you are convicted of driving on a suspended license three times within a five year period you will become a Habitual Traffic Offender, lose your Florida driving privileges for five years, and face up to five years in prison.
