How Many DUIs in FL Will Revoke My License?

August 21, 2020

duiDriving under the influence is a serious offense in Florida. You can only accrue so many tickets for DUI before your license will be revoked.

However, you may wonder how many it takes to reach this point and if your license can be revoked on the first offense. You can protect yourself legally by retaining an experienced Palm Harbor DUI attorney from the Law Office of Robert Eckard & Associates.

Avoiding Revocation on a First Offense

Most first-time DUIs in Florida are punished with light sentences like fines and community service. However, depending on the circumstances, the judge assigned to your case could entertain the possibility of revoking your license on a first DUI conviction.

You need to convince the judge to let you keep your license and instead punish you some other way. Rather than argue for yourself, you can hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer in Palm Harbor to represent you.

Your lawyer can present arguments and evidence to show that you are not a dangerous DUI offender and someone who can be reformed without losing your license. Your lawyer may be able to convince the judge or jury to give you community service, a fine or possibly even a minimal jail sentence. When you serve your sentence, you would still retain the right to drive.

Multiple DUI Representation

If you have multiple DUIs on your record, you still may not want your license suspended. Your lawyer can ask the court for another sentence like finishing a substance abuse program or therapy. He or she may convince the judge that you will be a safer driver once you complete this alternative sentence and that you do not deserve having your license taken away from you.
