I have received notification that I am a Habitual Traffic Offender, what can I do?

You come home after a long, hard day at work to find out your day just got worse. You received a letter from the DMV that you have been labeled a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) and you are going to lose your driver’s license for 5 years! How are you supposed to survive without a driver’s license for 5 years! Can you reinstate your driver’s license if you pay off your outstanding tickets? Are you eligible for a hardship license? Simply, the answer is maybe, it depends. A variety of factors are to be considered such as, what was the reason for the designation (i.e. too many points, too many tickets, too many criminal traffic offenses)? In certain instances, it may be possible for you to reinstate your driver’s license without the hardship designation!

This is something that you need to discuss with an attorney who has experience in handling these situations. The Florida DMV’s website has answers to only some of the questions, How do I reinstate my license after a revocation as a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO)? According to the DMV, after 1 year from the effective date of revocation, you may request a hardship license, but you must first complete the Advanced Driver Improvement School (ADI), pay any other applicable fees and costs (Including a $75 revocation reinstatement fee), and have a favorable ruling after a hearing with the Bureau of Administrative Reviews. This hardship license is commonly referred to as a BPO license (Business Purposes Only). However, as previously mentioned above, in certain situations it may be possible to have the Habitual Traffic Offender designation removed from your driving record and for you to receive a valid Florida Driver’s License!
