Driver's License Revocation

Florida Statute §322.271

If convicted of a DUI charge, it is no surprise that the individual's driver's license may be revoked. This is just one of the many consequences someone might face under these circumstances, but it is definitely one of the most debilitating. There are several different periods of license revocation, however, depending on the level of the DUI offense, as well as the consecutive number of times convicted.

Consecutive DUI Convictions

  • First DUI: May result in a 180 day to 1 year license revocation
  • Second DUI: May result in a minimum license revocation of 5 years
    • May be eligible for a hardship license (provisional license) after 1 year, however
  • Third DUI: May result in a minimum license revocation of 5 years
  • Third DUI (Within a 10 Year Period): May result in a minimum license revocation of 10 years
    • May be eligible for a hardship license after 2 years, however
  • Fourth DUI: Will result in a mandatory permanent driver's license revocation
    • Will not be eligible for a hardship license at any time

The more times an individual faces a DUI charge, the more detrimental the situation becomes, but there are severe ramifications for more serious DUI offenses, as well.

Other DUI Offenses

  • DUI Manslaughter: Will result in a mandatory permanent license revocation
    • If no prior DUI convictions exist, may be eligible for a hardship license after 5 years
  • DUI Causing Serious Bodily Injury: May result in a minimum license revocation of 3 years
  • Murder with a Motor Vehicle: Will result in a mandatory permanent driver's license revocation
    • Will not be eligible for a hardship license at any time
