Florida Law prohibits any person convicted of a fourth DUI (Jacksonville Driving Under the Influence) from obtaining a Florida Driver’s License. In Jacksonville, if you receive a conviction for driving under the influence for the fourth time in your life, your Florida license will be suspended permanently. Thus, you will never be able to legally drive a vehicle, and you are not eligible for a hardship license.
However, this could change if House Bill 971 is passed. This Bill permits those convicted of four DUI offenses to obtain a Florida driver’s license after the completion of a Jacksonville DUI treatment program. In addition to the DUI program, the Jacksonville driver is required to have an ignition interlock device, similar to a breathalyzer, installed in his or her vehicle. The Bill will be presented to Governor Charlie Christ.
