How do I avoid my license getting cancelled ??

Asked about 2 years ago - Baltimore, MD

I got a speeding ticket an year ago in NY upstate. I had a FL driving license then. I was fined and was not informed if there were any points on my license (I assumed there were). Later, since my parents moved to MD permanently, I have changed my license to MD state. Now, after a year later, I came to know that I have received a letter from FL DMV to my old FL address stating order of cancellation of my license for a indefinite period due to failure to take basic driving improvement class that I was not even aware of being informed of. I was only lucky enough to have been informed that I received at least this letter. The letter stated that the cancellation is to be in effect from July 23rd. Please suggest me what can be done. I do not want to hold the record of having my license cancelled

    Answered . As you have changed your license to Maryland I do not think Florida would have the power to suspend your Maryland driver's license. However to avoid any possible hits to your insurance I'd contact a Maryland Speeding Ticker/Traffic court attorney to discuss this further.
