Once a person becomes labeled a habitual offender in Florida, life can become increasingly difficult.

Let’s Talk About What Exactly Is a Habitual Offender
A habitual offender usually falls into one of two categories. One is a habitual traffic offender, the other a habitual felony offender.
In Florida, a habitual traffic offender (HTO) is someone who has a DMV driving record that indicates they have had three serious driving offenses like DUI’s or driving with a suspended license or the equivalent of 15 convictions of moving violations.
Habitual felony offenders (HFO) fall into two categories of their own. The first is a non-violent habitual offender and the second is a violent habitual offender.
What are the Penalties of Being a Habitual Offender?
For those who are designated a habitual driving offender in the State of Florida, a five-year drivers license suspension usually occurs. This can not only be costly in terms of fines and court costs but ultimately, insurance costs will skyrocket, perhaps to the point of being prohibitive.
Quality of life can be seriously impacted, you may not have the ability to get or maintain meaningful employment and you may not be able to go out and do the things you enjoy because you cannot drive. Due to the serious ramifications involved with being labeled a Habitual Traffic Offender, it is frequently well worth fighting. This is where Traffic Ticket Mom can help.
