In Florida, many license suspensions are referred to as D-6 suspensions. A license suspension will often occur from a person’s failure to appear for a court date or his or her failure to pay a traffic ticket or fine. Rather than issuing a warrant for your arrest, a judge may instead decide to suspend, or “D-6″, your license. Your license will then only be able to be reinstated after appearing in court and getting an order from the judge who issued the D-6 suspension.

Florida is one of the strictest states in the U.S. when it comes to license suspension laws. In Florida, your unpaid traffic ticket may turn into a criminal offense, and your failure to appear in court could lead to a D-6 suspension. Driving without a license is yet another criminal offense that could stem from this small and seemingly unimportant traffic ticket. In some cases, a bench warrant may even be issued, although a D-6 suspension may be used in lieu of a warrant.
Only a skilled lawyer can advise you as to what you should do if you have a D-6 suspension issued against you. You must be sure to take the right steps to getting your license reinstated so you can drive again.
