HTO (Habitual Traffic Offender)

Jacksonville is very serious about habitual traffic offenders (HTOs). In serious cases, this can result in not just the suspension of your license, but in a revocation of your license that lasts five years. For those facing these situations, it can be difficult to get to work, to the store, and to run even the simplest errands. If you are facing HTO charges, we can help you get your life back on track. In fact, we may be able to get your license back.

 

Many people are surprised to learn that they are considered habitual traffic offenders. It simply requires that you are convicted of specific actions three times or more within a five-year period. These offenses include:

 

      DUI

      Manslaughter (voluntary or involuntary)

      Motor vehicle-related felonies

      Driving with a suspended license

      Driving with a revoked license

      Failing to stop and render aid in relation to an auto accident

      Driving a commercial vehicle without relevant qualifications

 

Additionally, you could be labeled as an HTO if you are convicted of 15 moving violations within five years under the current point system used in Florida.

 

Being labeled as an HTO has serious ramifications. Your license can be suspended for a period of up to five years. If you’re caught driving after this, you could face felony charges resulting in thousands of dollars in fines and even up to five years in prison.
