2 Ways to Remove an HTO Suspension

We're going to talk about two ways that we lawyers can remove a Five-year, HTO suspension from your driving record. And, we can do this at any time. Hopefully, you catch it before the five years even starts, but that's not mandatory.

We can do this three years into an HTO suspension, one year, one month, timing doesn't matter. There's a third way to remove your HTO and we're just not going to talk about it today because we don't have time, it would be too long and boring of a video.

But, here's the two ways that we're going to review. The first way is an attack through the Department of Motor Vehicles. In other words, we've got to get a copy of your driving record. We've got to review it with a fine-tooth comb. There are mistakes on people's driving records. I know it's shocking for me to allege that our government makes mistakes, but they do it all the time, and a lay person just doesn't always look at their driving record much less know what's wrong with it, much less know what to tell DMV to fix it. That's one way that we can get rid of it [the HTO suspension].

The second way we can get rid of a five year HTO suspension is to skip the DMV all together, bypass them--we go straight to the judge and we go straight to the judge on one of the underlying driving while license suspended charges. It takes three to get an HTO suspension.

We'll take one of those--we'll find the one that the driver Paid a $184.00 and didn't know that the payment of that citation was going to lead to a five-year suspension.

Look, when you don't have notice as to the consequences of paying a ticket, we can appeal to the judge and there's also a separate rule, Traffic Rule 6.360, between that traffic rule and the fact that the driver didn't know what the consequences were, we can get a judge to remove a conviction and remove an HTO.

Client Reviews
"I can not express better my gratitude to John Guidry. His customer service exceeded my expectations. He always listened to my needs and my case and he explained in details every options I have and the steps to take. He maintained full communication with me and answered to my calls in less than five minutes. It was worth every single penny. I highly recommend this lawyer." J.P.
"I spoke to a couple of attorney's before speaking to John and I knew right away he was the attorney I would hire. He is very professional and a very caring individual. He is up front about the cost of service, with no surprises. I am in my late 50's and was never in trouble with the law and he made me feel very comfortable and reassured me of a positive outcome.....which it was. I highly recommend The Law Firm of John Guidry II." M.C.
"John Guidry worked closely with my family over a trivial matter. However, he treated it like it was the only case on his plate. He was kind, patient, professional, and just an excellent person to have on our side. While we reached out to him over a year ago, we are still constantly in contact with him. He makes sure there is no question left unanswered and personally reaches out to you himself whenever he possibly can. Very grateful for you, John!" K.P.
