What Does It Cost to Fix A Suspended Drivers License

Has your drivers license been suspended?  Are you trying to get you’re your drivers license back?  Do you want to have a valid license?  Have you been trying to pay your speeding tickets, but you are still having problems with your driving record?  Regardless of where you live in Florida, you probably need a drivers license.  It is very difficult to work, go to school, and take care of your household and children without the ability to drive a car.

If your drivers license has been suspended, DO NOT DRIVE.  I know that this is easier said than done.  If you drive while your license is suspended, you will be issued a traffic ticket. In many cases, you could be given a citation for a criminal driving on a suspended or revoked license charge.  Then, you will need to set a court date and go before the judge.  If you are a habitual traffic offender, you can be arrested for a felony criminal offense.  If you continue to drive with a suspended license, you are going to destroy your driving record.  You will also make a criminal record for yourself.  This could result in criminal convictions, and you will not be able to seal or expunge your record.

How much does it cost to fix your driver license?  How much will it cost to hire a drivers license lawyer?  A lawyer will charge you based on the work that needs to be done.  The worse your driving record, the more work your ticket lawyer will put into your case.  This is one of the reasons that you should stop driving if your drivers license is suspended.  If you keep messing up your driving record, it is going to be harder to eventually fix it.

You are going to need to pay your tickets if you want to have a valid drivers license again.  There is a “catch 22” to paying your outstanding traffic tickets.  If you pay all of your fines, your drivers license could be suspended for a time period, because you have too many points.  Talk to a ticket lawyer about your driving record before moving forward.  Your attorney may also have to reopen old driving on a suspended license cases for you.

All together, this is what it will cost to fix your drivers license in Florida:

  1. You will need to pay your traffic citations (remember the points associated with paying tickets).
  2. Your old speeding tickets and traffic citations will have late fees associated with them that you will need to pay.
  3. There is also a D6 clearance fee from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
  4. The price of a Florida drivers license lawyer will depend on the extent of your driving record.  Usually, it varies from $500 to $2500.   There is no set number, because everyone’s record is different.
