Many times a person is unaware their driver’s license was suspended. The State of Florida suspends or revokes a person’s driver’s license in the event of a DUI charge, failure to pay traffic tickets, driving without insurance or receiving a driver’s license via supplying false information to the State of Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
If you are caught driving on a suspended or a revoked driver’s license in Jacksonville, and the State of Florida is able to prove that you were aware of the suspended or revoked status of your driver’s license, the penalties you face are as follows:
First or second offense of driving with a suspended or revoked license
• Up to 60 days in prison and a fine of up to $500
• Charged with a misdemeanor
• Up to 5 years in prison and a fine up to $5000
• Charged with a felony
Remember, the State of Florida must prove that you were aware that your driver’s license was suspended or revoked. To avoid serious fines, jail time and a criminal record you need a criminal defense attorney in Jacksonville to fight for your rights and your freedom.
