HABITUAL TRAFFIC OFFENDER (HTO)

Under Florida Statute 322.264, the DMV has the authority to revoke (suspend) your driver's license for a period of five years if your driving record reflects three or more convictions of any one or more of the following offenses arising out of separate acts within a five year period:

DUI
Driving while license suspended or revoked (with or without knowledge)
▪ Any felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used
▪ Failing to stop and render aid (accident involving injury or death)
▪ Voluntary or involuntary manslaughter resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle
▪ Driving a commercial motor vehicle while his or her privilege is disqualified

A person may also be classified a habitual traffic offender by accumulating fifteen convictions for moving traffic offenses for which points may be assessed as set forth in Florida Statute 322.27, including those offenses listed above.

The two offenses listed above in bold font are the most common triggers for this five-year suspension. Many people do not realize the consequences of paying the fine on a driving while license suspended without knowledge ticket as it is not criminal in nature and the fine is often nominal. Whenever you pay three of these tickets, you are classified a Habitual Traffic Offender and your license will be revoked.

Remove Your HTO Suspension Now
If you have been classified a Habitual Traffic Offender, the DMV has the authority to revoke your license for a minimum of five (5) years. However, Attorney David Gilbert may be able to get the Florida Habitual Traffic Offender suspension removed by filing the appropriate motion(s) with the Court. Once the HTO status is removed, you will no longer be required to purchase SR-22 insurance and your full driving privilege will be restored. This process will normally take approximately four to six weeks (so long as there are no other issues preventing you from obtaining your driver license).If you have been classified as a Habitual Traffic Offender in Florida, please call me to discuss your options.
