202) When can I drive w/ a FL Hardship / BPO License? ~ Michael Haber Miami Criminal Defense DUI Law

Thank you for asking me “When can I drive with a FL Hardship / BPO Driver License?”

So you have to drop-off or pick-up your kid to or from school, or go to the grocery store, or need something at Target, or want to go to the movies… BUT can you do so if you have a Hardship / Business Purposes Only driver license in FL? The answer is that you can, but just like you can jump out of a airplane without a parachute it’s a very bad idea.

Be very clear on this: You have no right to drive in FL (or in any State for that matter) and your driver license, including any endorsements or restrictions, is a contract between you and the State, a contract that you must honor or face serious consequences, sometimes including jail.

If you have a hardship or “Business Purposes Only” restriction on your driver license then your ability to drive is absolutely and unequivocally restricted.

F.S. 322.271(1)(c)(1) spells it out: With a BPO license you can drive 1) to or from work, 2) to of from school, 3) to or from necessary on-the-job driving, 4) to or from necessary medical appointments or 5) for bona fide religious purposes.

If you are caught driving at any other time or for any other purpose then you can expect a to be given criminal traffic citation and possibly be booked into the local jail.

Driving on a DUI suspension is pretty much the Murder-1 of County Criminal Traffic Court, and most prosecutors and Judges won’t show any compassion or tolerance for this sort of a knowing violation.

So, if you have a restricted or BPO license then please, pretty please, don’t drive unless you are permitted to do so. Get rides, Uber, Lyft, use public transportation, walk or stay put… It all beats jail… and legal fees.
