Does Your Job Depend On A Valid Driver’s License?
If you drive a vehicle that requires you to hold a Florida commercial driver’s license (CDL), you know that you cannot afford to lose your license, as it is your livelihood. When you are at work, you may be a cautious driver, knowing that being involved in an accident could damage your career as a driver.
However, the risk of a CDL issue extends far beyond the cab of your work vehicle. If you are ticketed for any offense, even if you are driving your private vehicle, those points can affect your CDL and your continued employment. At Adam Chrzan, Attorney At Law, we understand your concerns, and we can help.
Points In Florida
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, license suspensions are based on the following point accumulations:
- 12 points within 12 months results in a 30-day suspension.
- 18 points within 18 months results in a three-month suspension.
- 24 points within 36 months results in a one-year suspension.
Additionally, you can pick up points for out-of-state tickets if Florida would charge points to your license for a similar offense. There are also offenses that can lead to an automatic suspension. If you drive for a living, you cannot afford to accumulate points that will cost you your license and your job.
