Protecting Your Privilege To Drive
Under Florida law, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has the right to suspend your license after sending you a notification. There is nothing in the law that requires the DMV to provide proof that you received the notification or ensure that you understand why you are losing your driving privileges. The DMV is only required to show proof that it mailed the letter.
Even If Your License Is Suspended, You May Be Able To Drive With Restrictions
Losing your driver’s license because of a serious traffic violation, a criminal offense such as a drug charge or another reason unrelated to driving will have a serious impact on your life and employment. If you are facing a driver’s license suspension, there are options available for fighting the suspension or petitioning the DMV for a provisional restricted license that will allow you to drive to and from work, to family appointments and for other valid reasons.
