Florida Statute

An Habitual Traffic Offender status is earned as a result of repeatedly operating a motor vehicle in an unsafe manner or repeatedly driving while your privileges have been suspended.  Your full driving privileges are revoked for five (5) years.  Florida law does permit you to request a Hardship License to drive to and from work after your license has been suspended for at least one year.

An HTO revocation occurs when an operator's record shows that the person has earned a specified number of convictions (listed below) within a 5-year period.  The specific offenses are described in sub-paragraphs 1 and 2 below:

  1. Fifteen (15) convictions of moving traffic offenses for which points are earned including any offenses listed under section 2 below. Or ..
  2. Three (3) or more convictions of any of the following violations arising out of separate acts:
  1. Voluntary or involuntary manslaughter resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle;
  2. Any DUI violation covered under of s. 316.193, former s. 316.1931, or former s. 860.01;
  3. Driving a motor vehicle while your license is suspended or revoked;
  4. Failing to stop and render aid as required under the laws of Florida in the event of a motor vehicle collision resulting in the death or personal injury of another;

To regain your Driving Privileges as a result of HTO, you will need to accomplish the following:

  • If your suspension occurred over 1 year ago, but less than 5 years from effective date of revocation, you can apply for a Hardship License.  Follow these steps:
  1. Enroll and complete the 12 Hour ADI Course.  The class will help you prepare for your Hardship License Hearing.
  2. Call your nearest DMV Office that conducts Hardship License Interviews to request an appointment.  Your hearing will generally last about 30 minutes.  If your hearing with the DMV Administrative Reviews Office is favorable, a license will be issued but you will be restricted to driving for Employment or Business Purposes only.
  • When you serve the entire HTO revocation period without a hardship license, a hearing with an Administrative Review Officer is not required.  You can reinstate for full privileges by presenting your 12 Hour ADI Course Completion Certificate to any driver license or tax collector licensing agent office and pay the revocation reinstatement fee (around $70.00) along with any other applicable fees for issuance of a driver license.
