How long before I am eligible for a Florida drivers license reinstatement if I have a suspended license? Florida

This varies widely depending on the reasons behind your suspended license.

For instance, if you accumulated 12 points on your Florida drivers license within 12 months, you'll likely face a three-month suspended license. If you caused an accident that resulted in a death, you could lose your driving privileges for a year. If you're labeled as a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO), you could face a five-year driver license suspension.

Also, with some license suspensions, the judge may have some leeway in determining how long you'll be without your license.

Additional License Reinstatement/Revoked License Information

If you need more information about license suspension lengths, it's best to contact the FL DHSMV. You can visit the Web site, or call the agency at (850) 617-2000.

Hardship Drivers License

While serving your suspension, you may be eligible to drive on a limited basis, such as to and from work or school. But, you need a hardship drivers license to do so. Contact your administrative reviews office for details on how this works, and see if you qualify for a hardship license.
