How does the state prove driving while license suspended or revoked?

Florida Statute 322.34(2)(c) The state must prove the individual had knowledge that his or her license is suspended. The element of knowledge is satisfied if the person has been previously cited for driving with a suspended or revoked license or the person admits to knowledge of the suspension, revocation, or suspension or the person received notice at the last address the individual provided to the Department of Highway Safety Motor Vehicles.

There is a rebuttable presumption that the knowledge requirement is satisfied if a judgment or order appears in the individual's department of motor vehicles driving record for any case except for one involving a suspension by the department for failure to pay a traffic fine or for a financial responsibility violation.

If you have been arrested for driving with a suspended or revoked driver's license, contact Mr. Rutkowski now.
