Florida Driver's License Point System

If you have already paid your ticket and received points on your license, our attorney may be able to reopen your case and remove the points from your license. Even if your license has been suspended due to too many points, the attorney may be able to help remove the extra points to allow you reinstate your license.

The attorney can do this by filing written motions. For example, if you paid a ticket and thereby accepted guilt, the attorney can file a motion to change your plea to no contest. If you went to trial, and were found guilty, the attorney can file a motion for relief.

Generally the motions take 3 to 5 weeks to be heard, and the more time that has passed since the points were imposed to more difficult it is. Therefore, do not delay. Call as soon as possible so that the attorney can start to work on removing your points.

In computing points and suspensions, the offense dates of all convictions are used. Three points will be deducted from the driver record of any person whose driving privilege has been suspended only once under the point system and has been reinstated, if such person has complied with all other requirements.


NOTE:
Serving a point suspension does not prohibit these convictions from being used to accumulate additional suspensions or revocations.
