A valid driver’s license is necessary to get to work, pick up your kids from school, and handle chores like grocery shopping.

Your license can be suspended or revoked for a myriad of reasons, including:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Failing to pay child support
- Causing death or injury while driving
- Accumulating too many points on your license
- Driving without auto insurance
This is far from a complete list of possible reasons for your suspension. Contact our West Palm Beach lawyer today to discuss options to reinstate your driver’s license.
The process to reinstate a license varies depending on why it was suspended or revoked. If it was suspended due to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, your West Palm Beach license reinstatement lawyer can request a hearing within 10 days of the arrest. Then the lawyer can present a case to challenge the suspension.
On the other hand, if past-due child support or another unmet financial obligation is the reason for the suspension, your attorney can work to set up a payment plan so you can catch up. Then you can take steps to get your license back.
While these are general examples, your attorney needs to discuss the specifics surrounding your case. Thus, contact our firm today to schedule a consultation with a lawyer.
If your driver’s license is suspended,, you might still be eligible for a hardship license. Florida offers two types of hardship licenses. First, you can apply for a business license to allow you to drive when completing necessary activities, such as commuting to work and school. You can also use this to go to medical visits, attend religious services,, and drive at work if your job requires it.
A work purposes only hardship license is the second option. If approved, you can use it to drive to and from work, but you cannot drive anywhere else.
It will be much easier to state your case after hiring a license reinstatement lawyer in West Palm Beach. Contact our firm today for a one-on-one consultation with an attorney.
