Fourth DUI

The State of Florida has some of the harshest DUI penalties in the nation. As such, every DUI conviction is a permanent blemish on a person's criminal record which could affect them as well as their family. Being convicted of your fourth DUI could cause a person to lose their driver's license permanently, making their commute to work and completing simple tasks more difficult, and they could be forced to spend multiple years in prison.

Penalties for Fourth or Subsequent DUI Offense

Being convicted of a fourth or subsequent DUI offense would inflict severe penalties that are meant to have a lasting impact on the remainder of your life.

    • Up to 5 years in Prison,
    • Lifetime Revocation of Driver's License,
    • Ineligible to apply for Hardship License, and
    • Up to $2,000 ($4,000 when BAC was 0.15 or higher)

When the defendant has been convicted of a DUI within the past 10 years the following mandatory penalties will be enforced:

    • Minimum Sentence of 30 Days in Jail, and
    • Car Impounded for 90 days

Lifetime Suspension - Florida Driver's License Revocation

Possibly one of the sternest consequences of a fourth DUI conviction in Florida is having your driver's license permanently revoked, regardless if the offense is treated as a lesser DUI charge by the trial court at sentencing.

A DUI that is reflected on a person's driving record as their fourth DUI will result in them having their driver's license permanently revoked. The laws of Florida now provide a person to qualify for a hardship license after serving ten (10) years of their revocation period.

After serving a minimum of ten years of a revocation period, a person convicted of their fourth DUI becomes eligible to apply for a hardship driver's license in the Administrative Reviews Office of Miami-Dade County, Florida. However, the person must first successfully complete DUI School and all of the recommended treatment if required.
