    DRIVING WHILE LICENSE SUSPENDED (DWLS) IN FLORIDA

    By the way, Florida may suspend or revoke your driving privileges for many reasons. In fact, driving on a suspended license or revoked license (DWLS) is a crime. And, in some cases a felony.

    Hence, DWLS (Driving While License Suspended) charges come with serious penalties. In all honesty, it is best to avoid them. Furthermore, it puts you at risk of losing your driver’s license for 5-years (Habitualization). In fact, we know the importance of putting you back in the driver’s seat and with a clean record.

    DWLS Civil and Criminal Tickets

    Notably, a civil DWLS infraction occurs when you have a suspended without your knowledge. And, within 20 days of the suspension, an officer pulls you over. Additionally, if you receive 3 DWLS without knowledge conviction you will lose your license for 5 years.

    Whereas, a criminal DWLS infraction occurs when you have knowledge of your suspended or revoked license. And, then you get pulled over. In fact, under Florida Statute 322.34 (2), your first offense is a second-degree misdemeanor. So, you will need you to appear in court and counts towards the 3 offenses it takes for habitualization.

    Additionally, a second offense becomes a first-degree misdemeanor and also counts towards habitualization. So, your DWLS can become a felony in one of two ways; with habitualization or with three or more offenses.
