If you are a professional driver or drive a truck or vehicle as part of your employment a suspended license can stop your income dead in it's tracks. If you are a delivery driver for a large company or small pizza place you need that license to stay on the road and keep earning a living. You need to get your license back and you need it back fast. You also need to have the history removed from your driving record if at all possible. Guy Seligman is an experienced license restoration lawyer. He has experience with commercial drivers as well as CDL and Florida drivers license.
Your drivers license is considered to be suspended from the time the suspension is imposed, even though the period of suspension may not officially begin until a later date. In addition, the suspension usually continues until the license is actually restored by the court or agency that imposed the suspension. If you are out of state and your Florida license is suspended you will most likely not get a license in any other state.
If your Florida driver's license has been suspended or revoked as a result of a DUI or from accumulation of points for several traffic violations, the Florida license restoration law firm of Guy Seligman can help you get your license back.

Some examples of points assigned after a traffic offense include:
- Failing to stop at a red light: 4 points.
- Reckless driving including reckless driving when reduced from a DUI or reckless driving when property damage occurs: 4 points.
- Failing to yield right-of-way: 3 points.
