You need to get an abstract from DMV and find our when and why your license was suspended. You should also consult with an attorney experienced in Traffic Court matters to get his or her advice.
1) Brooksville is in Hernando, not Broward County, and Broward rulings have no authority in your case.
2) DMV plays by its own rules. You are best advised to listen to what they say and to do what they instruct, or they simply will deny you a FL-DL and then outspend, outlast and outweigh your efforts at getting them to reverse gears.
3) That said, my advise is that you hire a local skilled and experienced Brooksville area traffic lawyer to assist you. I can't speak to the Brooksville area per se but in Miami, Fl, where I have been a practicing criminal defense lawyer for 23+ years, there are many skilled and experienced traffic lawyers who know the law, the procedure, the Judge and probably the cop. In short you will almost certainly get both competent representation and a better result for a relatively small fee / investment.
I hope 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.)
I agree with the other commenters. You need an attorney to fight this with the DMV. The DMV also plays by its own rules. One clarification though to Mr. Haber's very good response. While normally a Broward county case would not control, it actually does control in this situation since there is no conflicting District court of appeal cases to the contrary (as of this date). There are a LOT of complexities as to how this controls which is why it is crucial to get an attorney to help you get your license and then possibly overturning that ticket.
