Reinstate a Suspended Florida Drivers License after DUI

How Do I Reinstate My License after a Florida DUI?

  • First DUI – 180 days to a 1-year revocation effective on conviction date. Or, first offense DUI with Serious Injury – at least a 3-year revocation. Before expiration of the revocation period, you may apply for a hardship license in the county where you live. DUI School completion and treatment, if referred, is required.
  • Second DUI – second offense not within 5 years from prior conviction will result in a 180-day to 1-year revocation. You cannot reinstate early for hardship. The full revocation period must be served before requesting driver license reinstatement.
  • Third DUI – third offense not within 10 years of second conviction will result in a 180-day to 1-year revocation, unless the last 2 of the convictions fall within 5 years in which case a 5-year revocation will apply. You are not eligible for a hardship license, but must wait out the revocation period.
  • Fourth DUI or Subsequent DUI Conviction – You must serve 5 years of this revocation period before being eligible to apply for a hardship license in the Administrative Reviews Office (see listing “Under Suspension – Need Driver License for Work”) where you live. You must complete DUI School, and treatment, if referred, and have a favorable recommendation from the Special Supervision Services Program to be eligible for a hardship license.
  • DUI Manslaughter (single conviction) will result in a permanent revocation. You must wait 5 years before being eligible to apply for a hardship license in the Administrative Reviews Office (see listing “Under Suspension – Need Driver License for Work”) where you live. You must complete DUI School, and treatment, if referred, and have a favorable recommendation from the Special Supervision Services Program to be eligible for a hardship license.
  • DUI Manslaughter (in conjunction with prior DUI conviction): Permanent Revocation. There are no provisions for a hardship license.
