Re: dui

If you have a Florida DL, then Florida's law control how long your license is administratively suspended for being convicted of DUI.

You are eligible for a business purposes only license, but will need to enroll in a DUI Level 1 Class and undergo any recommended treatment before they will grant you a BPO license.

Bottom line is that you need to call your local DMV bureau of administrative reviews office to get the exact details of what you need to do.
