What if I can never get a Driver’s license?

 

 

There are certain circumstances where a person cannot obtain a valid license or they never had a license and they are charged with Driver under a Suspension. Either too much money is owed or there legal status in the country does not allow them to get a driver’s license. Many times that Driver under a Suspension charge can be negotiated to No Valid Driver’s License charge which does not carry the same aggravated penalties and driver’s license suspension issues that a DUS charge does. You can be convicted many times over for No Valid D/L Florida Statutes 322.03

 

(1) with no aggravating issues and is an alternative to a DUS charge if negotiated successfully.
