Driving Privileges and School Attendance

The Florida Legislature enacted requirements (Section 322.091, F.S.) that students who attain the age of 14 and accumulate 15 unexcused absences in a period of 90 calendar days be ineligible to receive or maintain driving privileges.

The Department of Education has issued a document which includes frequently asked questions and a reinstatement form. For your convenience these items are available below. You will need Acrobat Reader in order to view.

For more information regarding truancy suspensions, please call 850/617-3811. The department will also accept the needed reinstatement documents via fax at 850/617-5158.
