Hello and good morning I am a Florida resident have been one for four years I have been driving for over 25 years never had an accident so I came to Florida got a ticket for careless driving now I have to carry an SR22 how do I get rid of it first accidents that I've ever had since I began driving at 16
If you have a SR-22 requirement then that's b/c DMV ordered it and if it's to be rescinded then it will only happen b/c DMV lift's the requirement.
You may want to call the good folks at DMV in Tallahassee (850-617-2000). If you follow the rule of the 3 "p"'s (be patient, pleasant and polite) then you will likely be surprised at just how knowledgeable and helpful they can be.
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
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.)
It sounds unusual that one accident resulted in a SR22 requirement. If you were not insured that the time of the accident that would be the answer. You need to call DMV in Tallahassee and discuss it with them. Be prepared for a very lengthy wait.
Wishing you good luck
It sounds like you did not have sufficient insurance or you had no insurance. If that is not the issue, more information is needed to answer your question. I suggest you call a lawyer. Most criminal lawyers handle driver license issues because restoration of a client's driving privilege is often critical to resolving driving based criminal charges such as Driving While LIcense Suspended. A criminal defense lawyer would be a good source of guidance for your issue.
