D6 Suspension

Getting Your License Revoked

A D6 suspension is a type of driver’s license suspension that is ordered by the Florida courts when a person fails to appear in court for a criminal proceeding. Often times, instead of issuing a bench warrant in a person’s name, a judge may decide to issue a D6 suspension instead. What this suspension does is prevent the person from legally driving in the state. And, if stopped for a minor traffic violation by law enforcement, the person’s D6 suspension will show up and will alert law enforcement that the person has failed to appear for criminal proceedings, which can lead to the person’s detainment.

Once a D6 suspension has been ordered by the courts, the Florida DHSMV will suspend the person’s driver’s license immediately. The person’s license will remain suspended until he/she appears in court and deals with his/her legal matters accordingly. Once the person’s legal matters have been dealt with, the court will usually issue an order to have the person’s driving privileges reinstated. Until that point, the person cannot legally drive.

How do you know if you have one?

If you answered “yes”, it is in your best interest to consult with a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible. Once a D6 suspension has been issued, you immediately lose your right to legally drive in the state of Florida. This can greatly limit your quality of life and place restrictions upon your freedom. By consulting and working with a defense lawyer from Hager & Schwartz, you will able to address and deal with your legal matters, and have your driving privileges reinstated without further legal action.
