What is financial responsibility suspension?

As a Floridian driver, you likely know that a driver's license can be suspended for a number of reasons. Typically, the most common involve traffic violations or DUI related convictions. However, we at Steven Wetter, P.A., wish to inform you about a lesser known type of license suspension: financial responsibility suspension.

In short, financial responsibility suspension is when your license is suspended not for traffic-related reasons such as accidents, or reasons related to your ability to drive, but rather reasons related to certain specific monetary situations. This mostly applies to situations in which you have outstanding bills of some sort that need to be paid, and can include:

  • Court fines or fees
  • Child support payments
  • Court-ordered obligations
  • Restitution

Mostly, it's court-issued payments that you can have your license suspended over. This means that you can, in fact, deal with the possibility of your license being suspended if you miss multiple ticket payments, as an example. This can include speeding tickets, other traffic violation tickets, or even parking tickets.

The tricky part comes into play in that you may not be aware of the fact that your license has been suspended for missing out on these payments. Driving on a suspended license, whether you intended to do so or not, can lead to other severe consequences.

Are you interested in reading more about the different financial-related issues that may cause you to have your license suspended? Then take a look through the web page that we have provided a link for. It highlights the many issues that can potentially lead to license suspension, and what you can do to get your license restored.
