How Do I Get My Driver License Back Early After a Drug Conviction?

Posted by John Rutkowski | Jul 04, 2017 | 0 Comments

Anyone convicted of a drug crime in Florida is subject to having his or her driver license revoked for one year, whether, the individual was driving or not driving at the time of the arrest.

After undergoing an evaluation for and, if needed, completing a drug treatment program approved by Department of Children and Families. A person whose license or driving privilege has been suspended or revoked may, after 6 months, petition the department of highway safely and motor vehicles to reinstate his or her driving privilege on a restricted or unrestricted basis.

Authorized Providers

You must present the original Certificate of Completion to the department and it will be scanned and subject to verification to ensure that an approved provider issued it. (It will also be faxed to the Revocation Section in Tallahassee for further verification and to adjust any dates, if needed.)
