If your license has been suspended due to being labeled a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO), there’s hope. Follow this free guide to understand how you can overturn your HTO license suspension. If you need assistance, call Leppard Law: Florida DUI Lawyers & Criminal Defense Attorneys PLLC at 407-476-4111.

Eligibility Requirements

  • HTO Designation: You must be labeled as an HTO due to three or more specific traffic convictions within five years.
  • Compliance: You must resolve issues like unpaid fines, missed court dates, or incomplete driving courses as per Florida Statute 318.14(10)(a).

Steps to Overturn HTO Suspension

1. Identify HTO Offenses

Review your driving record to identify the specific offenses that led to your HTO designation. These should match the categories listed under Florida Statute 318.14(10)(a).

2. Resolve Compliance Issues

Ensure that you have paid any outstanding fines and completed any required driving courses. Collect all proof of compliance, such as receipts for fines paid and certificates for completed courses.

3. Prepare Your Motion

Write a motion to the court requesting that the conviction(s) leading to your HTO status be withheld. Attach all your proof of compliance. Reference Strickland v. State and Florida Statute 322.27(5) to support your request.

4. File the Motion

Submit your motion to the appropriate court where your HTO designation was issued. Make sure all documents are complete and accurately presented.

5. Attend Court Hearing

Attend the court hearing to present your motion. Explain the legal requirements and demonstrate your compliance with Florida Statute 318.14.

6. Convince the Court

Clearly show that you have met all compliance requirements. Persuade the judge to order the removal of your HTO designation.

7. Obtain Court Order

If successful, the court will issue an order directing the clerk to remove your HTO status. The clerk will then submit an amended record to the Florida DMV.

8. Follow Up

Check with the DMV to ensure your HTO status has been removed. Notify the court if there are any issues.
