D6 License Suspension in Florida

Written by:Julian Stroleny PortraitJulian Stroleny

As one of the larger states in the country, Florida has one of the highest numbers of drivers in the region. With more vehicles out on the roads every single day, it also means more traffic violations occur. Depending on the nature of the offense, a driver may be issued a citation and fined a certain amount. Failure to pay the fine, appear in court for the ticket, or to attend court ordered mandatory driving classes can result in the suspension of a license. It is important to point out here that more than one specific instruction can be included on a single ticket. Failure to comply with these instructions or pay the required fine may result in a suspended license. A license may also be suspended if the traffic stop was a part of a misdemeanor or a felony charge. In these cases, a qualified attorney from a Miami criminal law firm may be able to help.

What Exactly is the D6 License Suspension?

A D6 license suspension means an indefinite suspension of driving privileges. This is not only a major inconvenience during everyday life, but it also creates hurdles in applying for a job, getting to and from work, taking care of your family, and generally getting your life back on track.

A D6 license suspension can happen if you have unpaid tickets in traffic court. These tickets need to be cleared up before a reinstatement request can be forwarded. Depending on the particular traffic court, you may be able to pay your fine through a credit card online or over the phone. Most courts have a website that lists the possible payment options.

Another situation where a D6 suspension may occur is failure to complete court ordered school or failure to attend a school. In this case, it is necessary to contact the traffic court in the county where the incident occurred and satisfy any requirements they may have. This may include compliance with traffic summons and presentation of proof of satisfaction of any additional conditions.

A D6 suspension can also take place if you forget to show up for a traffic summons. Remember that a summons requires you to show up to court in person for a hearing. Missing this hearing may result in serious repercussions including having a warrant out for your arrest or having your driver’s license suspended.
