Getting Your Permit

What happens if I get a moving violation while I have a permit?

Florida is pretty serious about being a responsible driver on the road. You can face some serious consequences if you have a moving traffic conviction.

  • If you receive a moving traffic conviction while you have a Learner’s License, the one year period you are required to hold your Learner’s License will be extended for one year from the date of the conviction or until you are 18 years old, whichever happens first.
  • If you receive 6 points on your driving record within a 12 month period, your driving privileges are automatically restricted to business purposes only for 12 months or until you are 18, whichever happens first. If you receive additional points during this restricted period, the restriction is extended 90 days for each additional point.
  • If you have a blood alcohol level of .02% or more (applies to those under age 21), an administrative suspension of six months will result.
  • If you are truant in your school attendance, your driving privilege is suspended until you provide proof you have attended school for 30 consecutive days.
  • If you are convicted for possession of tobacco or nicotine products (applies to those under age 18), your learner license is likely to be suspended.
