How long can a driver's liscence be suspended for by law? What (if any) conversion table is used to figure out restitution amount =loss be if liscen

1 Answers. Asked on Oct 11th, 2017 on Criminal Law - Florida
More details to this question:
I was refused a driver's lissencephaly after moving back to New York. From FL. I took my permit test TWICE and passed. Then was told I have a hold in Florida but none can tell me what to do to get my liscence back. I recently found out the time served wasn't applied towards restitution. I was supposed to be sentenced to "time served" guess not. But it has been over 10 years since. Shouldn't that be more than enough punishment for the crime! Please. I have an 8 yr old, & a soon to be 5 yr old(oct18) and I NEED MY LISCENCE REINSTATED i don't want to drive illegal but I don't know how much longer I can be a "law abiding citizen"! I can't support jy family without a vehicle in New York. Please help me be a productive part of society!

Some offenses carry with them automatic license suspensions. If that is not causing a suspension, then it might be that whatever plea bargain or sentence you entered into almost certainly included court costs and restitution, non-payment of which can lead to suspension of your driver's license. You can check the status of your driver's license at https://services.flhsmv.gov/dlcheck/

Once you know why your license is suspended, you can either seek a hardship exception to allow you to drive for work purposes, or work out a payment arrangement if your license has been suspended because of non-payment.

Good luck!
