Obtaining a Hardship Driver's License in Florida

Jacksonville Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer

If our attorneys are unable to successfully challenge the administrative suspension, you may still be eligible for a hardship license. To be eligible for a hardship license, you must: (1) enroll in a DUI School, (2) serve the first 90 days of your one year of the administrative suspension, and (3) provide proof of enrollment in a DUI school to your local DHSMV Administrative Review Office. The review office will then process your hardship license application.

If the review office gives you approval to reinstate your license early for hardship purposes, you must then present this approval to your local driver license office. Finally, you must complete the DUI school within 90 days of being given the hardship license. Failure to complete the DUI school will result in cancellation of your hardship license until the DUI school is completed.

At the time of your license reinstatement, you must take the required examination and pay a $115 administrative fee, a $35 reinstatement fee and any license fee required. Additionally, proof of liability insurance on the arrest date, proof of current liability coverage, and a $15 reinstatement fee will be required.
