Driving with a Suspended License in Punta Gorda

Driving with a suspended license can be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on prior convictions. As your lawyer, the first thing I do is determine why your license was suspended in the first place. A license suspension can occur for many reasons, including:

  • Failure to pay a fine or traffic citation
  • Failure to appear in court
  • DUI
  • Drug possession
  • Refusal to take a Breathalyzer
  • Excessive points on your driving record

If you are arrested for driving on a suspended or revoked license, contact the Law Office of Joseph Lombardo, Jr., P.A. in Punta Gorda now to schedule a free consultation. Call 941-621-2840.

Habitual Traffic Offender

If you have prior convictions, the penalties will significantly increase in severity. In fact, if you have three or more driving with a suspended or revoked licenses charges within a five-year time frame, you will be labeled a habitual traffic offender. A habitual traffic offender sentence results in a mandatory five-year loss of driver's license privileges.

Charlotte County Hardship License

I will also tell you how to apply for a hardship license or a business purposes license. Limited licenses are not something that can be ordered by the judge. They are obtained through the DMV. I will give you the information you need to apply for a limited license through the Fort Myers Department of Motor Vehicles.
