  • My question is, after the one year Ga. suspension is up (May 2016), will Florida reinstate my driving privilege? Thank you.

    I have a one year probation with one year d.l. suspension in Georgia for a DUI. (I didn't actually possess a Ga. d.l. as I was a resident of Fl. with a valid dl there). The suspension began in May 2015. I moved to Florida and discovered that in...

    Once the Georgia suspension is up and you get them to release it then you can obtain a valid driver license in Florida. When I say "release", I mean that they no longer are treating your license as suspended. May have to pay a reinstatement fee or show proof that certain conditions have been met.

  • If I get a speeding ticket in Florida and I take the online driving school, do I still pay the fine?

    I got a speeding ticket in Florida. If I take the online driving school, I understand I won't get any points in Florida but will the ticket still get reported to my home state? And will I still have to pay the fine if I take driving school?

    Keith’s Answer

    Yes. IF you take the riving school you will have to pay the fine. In years past if you elected the school option, you would get a discount on the fine amount. That is no longer so. The Florida DHSMV will report the ticket to your home state. Sometimes it takes a while...but eventually it gets posted there.

  • Can police use private land to park or hover on?

    I was going down the hi-way and saw a police car parked in a church parking lot and then he took off, lights on for I assume a traffic violation because he pulled someone over. I thought perhaps the church had given him permission to censure their...

    Keith’s Answer

    Yes they can. The only thing that can stop them is if they are on private property and that property owner doesn't want them there...and there is no easement that allows it.

  • Is there a time limit to how long a Florida state trooper has to turn in a traffic citation? I think it shouldn't take 2 1/2mths

    My boyfriend and I were both given seat belt tickets on March 5, 2013. I was also given a citation for letting him drive my car without a license, as my car was messing up and I wasn't comfortable driving myself. He also got a citation for driving...

    Keith’s Answer

    They have five days to file their ticket with the clerk after issuing it to a driver. Some Judges will dismiss for this reason and some do not. Consult an attorney in the county where you received the ticket to see how that jurisdiction handles it.

  • What to do with an Improper Lane Change Ticket with no civil charge?

    I changed my lane in front of a police officer, and he gave me ticket.

    Keith’s Answer

    No, it does not. The State sets the amount. The clerk will give you the correct amount. Sometimes officers do not put the amount or even the wrong amount. Not fatal to the ticket's validity. Sorry.

    Keith’s Answer

    It usually takes about a week for the officer to file the ticket and for the clerk to enter it into the system. I would keep checking every few days until it is entered into the system. If it is entered and you were not vigilant to check, your license may end up suspended.
