Traffic tickets are a nuisance but they can cause financial problems for you.  Traffic fines and penalties not only put points on your license, they increase your insurance rates as well.

Florida puts a certain number of points on your driving record each time you receive a traffic ticket; points-per-violation range depending on the violation.

Once you get a certain number of points within a specific time period, the state will suspend your license.

Certain violations lead to mandatory license suspension or revocation. Sometimes these are point-based, sometimes they’re criminal or conviction-based, and sometimes they happen because you’ve simply failed to meet some requirement.

License Suspension: Generally, a license suspension means your license is taken away for a predetermined amount of time. Certain situations require you to meet requirements before your license is reinstated; others require you to just wait it out.

License Revocation: License revocations are often longer and more serious than suspensions. Depending on the violation, you may have to complete a requirement (such as waiting a certain time period as well as paying a fine) before you can have your license reinstated.

License Cancellation: Florida doesn’t usually outright cancel a driver’s license; revocations normally handle that. However, if a driver provides false information in order to obtain a license, or the DMV makes a mistake in issuing the license, the license will be canceled.

Sometimes, traffic violations that lead to license suspension or revocation are due to accumulating too many points rather than the actual violation. In Florida, if you accumulate:

  • 12 points during 12 months, your license will be suspended for 30 days.
  • 18 points during 18 months, your license will be suspended for 3 months.
  • 24 points during 36 months, your license will be suspended for 1 year.

If you’ve received a traffic ticket, give us a call today.  The consultation is free.
