How to move around when your driver’s license is suspended

On Behalf of | Jan 19, 2023 | Suspended License Issues

Different causes may lead to the suspension of your driver’s license. Examples include driving under the influence (DUI), reckless driving, not paying ticket fees or fines, too many tickets and not having insurance. Non-driving factors may also contribute to this. These include failure to fulfill a financial responsibility like paying child support, not complying with a court order and drug offenses.

The Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) allows residents to reinstate their licenses. Reinstatement requirements may differ depending on the circumstances that led to the suspension.

But how will you move around before your license is reinstated? Here are three tips.

Use public transportation

Luckily, Doral has a reliable public transportation system. Transport fees are fair, and service hours are convenient. Thus, you can get to work or run errands as usual.

Carpool

Using a taxi is another way to get to work, school or a trip when your license is suspended. However, to save money, consider sharing the ride with other residents. Most companies allow clients to find and book cars online. Additionally, you can create a private platform to carpool with coworkers, students or parents.

Bike

Doral has safe cycling routes you can use to get around, which can be found on a map. You can buy a bike or rent one from a nearby outlet. Florida is a bicycle-friendly state. Many people cycle to work or school. Thus, you won’t have a hard time adjusting. However, with this option, it will be best to be informed about safety measures.

Driving with a suspended license can get you into more trouble. Consider the options mentioned above before your license is reinstated. Further, get professional help to resolve the issue in a timely manner.
