Driving While License Suspended (DWLS) is a serious crime that can get progressively worse. It is not uncommon for people to attempt to drive without a license or to drive with a suspended license. The temptation is high, as nearly everyone has some type of commute to their work, school, church, grocery store, or other frequented area.

Suspended License

Miami Suspended License Violation Attorney

A DWLA charge turns on whether or not you had knowledge of the suspension. Maybe notice was sent to a wrong address, an old address, or got lost in the mail. At times, you may not even be aware that your license has been suspended because of a failure to pay traffic tickets or a similar situation. You are then pulled over for a simple traffic violation and find that you are facing criminal charges for DWLS.

The penalties for a DWLS vary depending on how many prior convictions you have for DWLS. Because knowledge of the suspension is critical, Driving With a Suspended License Unknowingly (without knowledge), is a civil infraction punishable by a fine and 3 points against your license.

  • A first offense for DWLS is a second-degree misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of sixty (60) days in jail
  • A second DWLS offense is a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one (1) year in jail
  • A third offense is actually a third-degree felony with a maximum five (5) year prison term

Do not take a DWLS ticket lightly, the results of a conviction can affect your livelihood. While driving is a privilege, most see it as a necessity. Because of the seriousness of this charge, it is important you hire an experienced lawyer to help clear your license and avoid these consequences.
