Bankruptcy and Suspension of Driving Privileges in Florida

21 Mar Bankruptcy and Suspension of Driving Privileges in Florida

McLovinUnder the laws of the State of Florida, every operator of an automobile must have a valid operator’s license.

Pursuant to a specific statute of this State, if an operator of a vehicle has been involved in an automobile accident and, as a result of the accident, there is a claim made against the operator, either for personal injury or property damage, the Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles for the State of Florida is authorized to suspend the license of the driver until the driver satisfies the claim asserted by the third party involved in the accident and furnishes proof of adequate insurance.

However, this is not the case if you properly scheduled the claim asserted against you by the third party involved in the accident and the claim of that person has been discharged in bankruptcy. Under this situation, the Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles is prohibited from suspending, revoking or denying your driver’s license.

As a bankruptcy attorney, I have seen this way too many times to count. It is unfortunate, but a fact of life.
