I've lived in Florida over 2 years. When I first got here I was arrested for a misdemeanor out of Texas. They released me and said as long as I stay out of Texas I'm good... I need my license back. I'm a service plumber and am limited to jobs without my drivers license.
Note: You asked this question again.
Texas and Florida are participants in the interstate compact.
You will nee to resolve your amtters in Texas before it will notify Florida that you can obtain a license.

You have no right to drive in FL (or anywhere); rather, driving is a privilege, and if your privilege has been revoked by another State then Fl will honor that revocation.
Regardless, if you do not do what FL-DMV says, when it says it, how it says it, to the "T" and without explanation or excuse then you will not be licensed in FL. It is truly that simple.
Dealing with DMV can be likened to being in a rip current. Go with it and your survival chances increase exponentially; fight it and prepare to die / drown.
That said, your best bet is to call the good folks at DMV in Tallahassee (850-617-2000). FL-DMV will give you all the information that you need to then contact NC-DMV.
If you can figure it out on your own with TX and reinstate then great; but if not then you will need to hire a TX lawyer to straighten it out. Either way, once TX clears you then they will communicate that to FL and you should be good to go.
Just remember, with either and both DMV's, if you follow the rule of the 3 "p"'s (be patient, pleasant and polite) you will be surprised at just how knowledgeable and helpful they can be.
If you choose to listen to me (and heed my advise) then I know that I will have been helpful to you.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
I'm not sure what you mean by "on hold" but you cannot get a FL license if you are not allowed to drive in TX. You really need to straighten out your TX license. This will not go away and if you get caught driving in FL you will be in bigger trouble and it will be expensive.
