A: You are writing from Atlanta, so I assume you're talking about the Georgia "DMV" as the entity that suspended your license, rather than the Fla. DHSMV. If that's the case, you need to ask a Georgia attorney. Your post came in under the category Car Accidents in Florida. Even if the accident occurred in Fla., it's still a Georgia law issue if it's a Georgia license. Re-post as best you can to get the attention of Georgia attorneys, even if you have to indicate Car Accidents in Georgia (and you can then explain that the accident was in Fla.) Also, you appear to have a typo - "Falange", whatever that is.
