DUI and Driver's License Suspensions

If a person is convicted of DUI in Florida, his driver's license is suspended by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.  How long his license is suspended for varies depending upon such things as how many DUI convictions he has and when they occurred.  Florida statute section 322.28 lists the following periods of suspension:
