- Financial Responsibility – FR Suspension
- Court Ordered Suspensions
- Point Suspensions

If your driver’s license is suspended or will be soon, you need to take immediate action.

Most people do not know why their driver’s license has been suspended until it happens to them. The DMV sends you a notice that either indicates that your license was suspended on a certain date or will be suspended on a certain date.
You Must Act Immediately
If your driver’s license has or will be suspended, you need to act fast. Delay can make it harder for you to reinstate your driver’s license in the future. Continued driving on a suspended license leads to criminal sanctions and jail.
Do Not Drive While Your Driver’s License is Suspended
While your driver’s license is suspended, do not drive. Knowingly driving with a suspended driver’s license is a criminal offense in Florida.
