If you have further questions about the suspension then you can call the good folks at DMV in Tallahassee (850-617-2000). If you follow the rule of the 3 “p”‘s (be patient, pleasant and polite) you will be surprised at just how knowledgeable and helpful they can be.

I don’t know what your son signed but if I were you I would get off line and into a skilled and experienced Bartow area criminal defense lawyer’s office and let a trained practicioner physically view the document and give you an informed opinion as to what it means. It may very well be more complicated than the cops let you / your son to believe.

I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.

First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
When it comes to the subject of drinking and driving, the best advice that you are ever going to hear is:  “Don’t do it!  Get a DD (Designated Driver), not a DUI”.

Be smart: Don’t drink and drive, but, if you do, just say “NO{thing}”, don’t blow (in FL your 2nd subsequent refusal is a crime) and call me stat at 305-381-8686, 305-798-2220, **ARRESTED, **305DUI, **MIAMIDUI, **MIAMILAW or **HABERLAW.
