Third (3rd) DUI Penalties and Punishments Under Florida Law
Reinstating Your Florida Driver’s License After a Third DUI Conviction
If you are convicted of third DUI in the State of Florida, including St. Petersburg or Clearwater in Pinellas County, the court must impose a driver’s license revocation. For a third DUI offense not within 10 years of a second conviction then the revocation will last from 6 months to 12 months unless the last of the two convictions occurred within 5 years. If the last two DUI convictions occurred within 5 years then the five-year revocation will apply. During the revocation period, the driver is not eligible for any type of hardship driver’s license under Florida law.
If the third DUI offense occurs within 10 years of a second conviction, then a ten (10) year revocation will apply. At least two years of the revocation period must be served before the driver can apply for a hardship driver’s license in the Florida Administrative Review Office. Before applying for a hardship license, you must complete DUI school and any recommended treatment. Other requirements apply.
