If your Florida driver’s license is suspended and you are stopped by a police officer, you will either be issued a traffic citation or arrested. If you are driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license and you are unaware of the revocation or suspension, you will be cited for unknowingly driving with a suspended or revoked license in Florida. This is a civil traffic infraction. If you were aware that your Florida driver’s license was suspended or revoked, you will be charged with a Florida Criminal Traffic Infraction. Usually, this is a misdemeanor charge. However, if you acquire three driving with a license suspended or revoked charges within a five year period, you will be labeled a Florida Habitual Traffic Offender. If you are stopped as a Florida Habitual Traffic Offender, you will be facing a felony arrest.
If you are issued a citation for civil or criminal driving on a suspended license, do not pay the ticket before talking to a Jacksonville Drivers License Lawyer. Because of the future ramifications that this could cause, it may be better for you to set a court date. If you pay the ticket, you will be adjudicated guilty of Florida driving with a license suspended or revoked.
