The amount of time that your drivers license will get suspended after a DUI will depend on the severity of the incident. If you caused bodily injury or property damage with your DUI your suspension can sometimes be longer. The duration of your suspension can also be longer if you have had additional DUIs in the past. It is important to contact the Florida DMV to find out how long your driver license will be suspended. You should also contact the DMV to see if you might be eligible for a hardship license. If you have any questions regarding your suspension and how it relates to your insurance please feel free to give our office a call.
