Are The Points On Your License Jeopardizing Your Driving Privileges?

As part of the consequences for certain crimes, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles assigns traffic points to your license. Different violations have different point levels; and if you accumulate too many points, your license could be suspended.

License suspensions in Florida can range from 30 days to more than a year. This all depends on how many points you have on your license and whether you are convicted of additional traffic offenses during the time your license is suspended.

Losing your license because of too many points can have a devastating impact on your life, perhaps even costing you your job in some cases. This is why it's important to understand your options when defending yourself against criminal charges. At Thomas G. Fallis, P.A., in Jacksonville, we will help you understand your situation and the options that will help you keep your license.

Get Help Developing A Strong Defensive Strategy

For more than 27 years, the name Thomas G. Fallis, P.A., has become synonymous with favorable outcomes in the courtroom. Attorney Thomas G. Fallis and his son, George T. Fallis, are well-known and well-respected in the Florida legal community for their integrity and dedication to their clients' best interests.

If you're facing charges for a traffic violation, such as driving under the influence, our criminal defense lawyers will carefully and thoroughly review your case to determine the best way to keep points off your record. We will fight to get the charges against you dropped, lowered or dismissed so you can keep your license and your driving privileges. We can also help you seek other options, such as attending an accredited traffic school or defensive driving course, as a way of keeping points off your record or getting them removed.

We Can Advise You On Hardship Licenses

If you need your license to maintain employment, then you could benefit from a hardship license (restricted license). For those who are eligible, a hardship license allows an individual to drive during the period of their license suspension, but only for business purposes or for school-related matters.

Applying for a hardship license can be a complex process. Not everyone meets the eligibility requirements either, which is why it's important to handle criminal matters right the first time around so you don't have to deal with the consequences on the back end. If this ends up being the case, however, the skilled attorneys at Thomas G. Fallis, P.A., can help you through the process.
