Drivers License Suspensions

Driving while license suspended is a serious offense in Florida. Not only could you lose your driver's license for up to five years, but you also may be facing criminal charges and jail time.

Call me, D. Scott Rieth, at 941-404-4192 for skilled defense against driving while license suspended charges. As a former prosecutor, I have years of experience representing people throughout Manatee County and Sarasota County.

Were You Caught Driving With A Suspended License?

If you are charged with driving while license suspended three times in a five-year period, you will be labeled a habitual traffic offender and could face felony charges, jail time and suspension of your license for up to five years.

Your driver's license can be suspended for a number of reasons, including failure to pay a speeding ticket, a DUI or other criminal charges. When your license is suspended, the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is required to send you a notice in the mail. If this notice was sent to the wrong address or was sent late, you may continue to drive without realizing that your license is suspended.

Defense Strategies That Lead To Positive Outcomes

There are many possible defenses to driving while license suspended. When you hire me to be your lawyer, I will review your driving record to ensure that your driver's license actually was suspended at the time of your arrest and that you knew that it was suspended. If you were not aware that your license was suspended, I may be able to help you get your charges dropped or dismissed. Even if you knew your license was suspended, there may be defenses available to you. Through motions to suppress illegally obtained evidence and aggressive representation in the courtroom, I will fight to protect your rights.

Additionally, if your driver's license has been suspended, I can represent you at the driver's license suspension hearing and help you reinstate your license or obtain a hardship license.
