DUI Revocation

Customers will be charged a $6.25 Tax Collector service fee for information and processing, and additional transaction fees may apply. Visit taxcollector.com to schedule your appointment. Services are for Manatee County residents and businesses only.

A DUI revocation has been placed on your record because you have been convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) by a court.
If you were granted early reinstatement and a hardship license was issued for your administrative suspension (DUBAL/Refusal at the time of citation), the hardship license has since been invalidated due to the DUI revocation.  This means that you will be required to re-apply for a hardship license (if desired) for your DUI revocation.
The length of revocation depends on the number of prior DUI convictions.  The standard revocation periods are listed below. However, a court can authorize a longer revocation period. (When this happens, an additional court-directed revocation will be added to your record that will run concurrent with the DUI revocation.)
Conviction Revocation Period
First conviction 180 days to 1 year
Second conviction within 5 years of first conviction 5 years
Second conviction after 5 years of first conviction 180 days to 1 year
Third conviction within 10 years of second conviction 10 years
Third conviction after 10 years of second conviction 180 days to 1 year
Fourth conviction where at least 1 prior conviction occurred after 7/1/82 Permanent

You have two options when you have this revocation on your record.

Once the expiration date has passed, you will need to visit the Driver License Office and comply with all of the following: 

 Provide proof of enrollment or completion of DUI School effective after the offense date that will be scanned and subject to verification.  (This will also satisfy the requirements to clear an administrative suspension, if one is still on your record from the DUBAL/Refusal.) 

 Provide a Release from Incarceration (72077) - if applicable.  This will be e-mailed to Driver Improvement (by our office) for review and to adjust the effective date of the revocation. Note: It can take up to 24 hours for the effective date of the revocation to be amended.

 If issuing a replacement license, you must present documents that establish your identity pursuant to the Real ID Act (e.g. US birth certificate, US passport, proof of name change(s), USCIS (INS) documents, Social Security Card and 2 proofs of residential address) unless you are already Real ID compliant and no changes are needed. For a complete list of acceptable identity documents, visit flhsmv.gov/whattobring

 An Online Application is REQUIRED for all transactions! To complete your driver license or ID card transaction at one of our offices, you must complete the Online Driver License & ID Card Application (https://taxcollector.jotform.com/210103795736152) – or scan the QR code to access the application – prior to your appointment. Do not print the application; an associate will access your electronic submission during your appointment. Applications are valid for 90 days. 

 Comply with any requirements for installing an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) if applicable

If you do not want to wait out the revocation period, you can contact BAR to find out if you are eligible for a hardship license and request a hardship hearing. If BAR approves issuance of a hardship license, you have three options for obtaining the physical license:

 Option 1: If BAR approves your application for a hardship license, they will issue a license with the proper hardship restriction and it will be mailed to you from Tallahassee. 

 Option 2: In the rare case that BAR does not issue the license, you may be able reinstate and request a new license online! If BAR has indicated on your record that you have been approved and the proper restriction to be placed on your license, you can reinstate and request your new license online - or scan the QR code to access the site. Remitting payment and reinstating online will save you a trip to our office.

Note: If required, you must comply with any requirements for installing an Ignition Interlock Device (IID).

 Option 3: In the rare case that BAR does not issue the license and you are ineligible to reinstate online, you can visit our office for issuance.  Upon verification of the hardship authorization, our office will issue a replacement license with the appropriate restriction, provided you submit the following: 

We will accept cash, check, debit cards, and credit cards. A $2.50 processing fee for debit cards and a 2.5% processing fee (minimum of $2.50) for credit cards will apply. Our office does not retain any portion of this fee.
