Suspended/ Revoked License

Your License can be suspended or revoked for a number of reasons in the state of Florida. Many times this happens when you change insurance companies, renew your insurance policy late, fail to pay child support, a criminal drug conviction, an alcohol offens such as a .02 violation if you are under 21, DUI, and if you fail to pay a traffic ticket to name a few. You can be charged with or without knowledge by the officer. This is normally determined by looking at your driving record and notice. Without notice is a civil citation(traffic ticket) and with knowledge is a criminal citation that can include jail time. If you are caught driving on a DUI suspention the likelyhood of jail time goes up as Judges and state attorneys take this very seriously. If you are convicted of three Driving while your license is suspended ( DWLS) in a five year period (DMV goes by your conviction date), they can be civil or criminal, you loose your license for 5 year. At this point you receive a letter from the DMV that says you are now a habitual traffic offender (HTO) and you will loose you license for 5 years and will have to wait a full year(with no driving whatsoever, the DMV will check) before you are eligible to get a hard ship license. If you are caught driving as HTO you can be charged with a 3rd degree felony that has a max penalty of 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine. If you receive a citation for DWLS or a letter from the DMV about you becoming an HTO, call today to talk to Mr. Bakay to discuss your options and how you might be able to get your license back. Mr. Bakay will fight aggressively to get your license back and has dealt with 100’s of people in the same situation you may find yourself in.

Traffic Tickets

Traffic tickets are issued for a variety of offenses in the state of Florida. Whether you are charged with speeding, involved in an accident, a seat belt violation, a window tint violation, the move over law, or any other citation, Mr. Bakay will fight aggressively to avoid any points on your license and try to prevent you from taking a school based on your driving record. Mr. Bakay will be happy to discuss with you your traffic options and how they affect your license. In Florida you have three options in regards to traffic tickets, you can pay the ticket and receive points, take a class( you can take one in a 12 month period and only have 5 in a ten year period) and pay a fine which would results in no points, or you can fight the ticket.

Traffic tickets will always be on your license, they never drop off as many believe. This is important to know because if you get points on your license you can have your license suspended if you get 12 points in a 12 month period. If you are stopped by the police you should be courteous and respect full. You should also not try and fight the ticket at that time, wait till you get to court. The reason for this is because the hearing officer or judge may take your attitude into consideration and if you argue at the scene you may make things worse by what you say. Mr. Bakay will fight aggressively for you and is available to discuss any questions you may have about your license and how your traffic ticket(s) may affect you.

Time is a factor in most cases so do not delay, call today for your free consultation.
