DUI Program

Special Supervision Services (SSSP)

Special Supervision Services (SSSP) Florida law allows individuals with 5 year, 10 year and permanent revocations to apply for DUI Special Supervision Services. This is a zero tolerance program. Use of drugs or alcohol is prohibited, except prescribed medication taken as directed. The DHSMV, Division of Driver Licenses, has the full statutory responsibility of granting the restricted driver license to the applicant. Registration in the DUI Special Supervision Services does not imply in any way that the Division of Driver Licenses will issue the restricted driver license to the applicant. Please see below for related details regarding the Special Supervision Program.

  • An applicant with a revocation of 5 years must wait until the expiration of twelve (12) months after the date the revocation was imposed as a prerequisite to admission into the program and must not have driven within the twelve (12) months prior to reinstatement. An applicant with a revocation of 5 years must have not used any drugs for at least the past twelve (12) months. Drugs include alcohol and those non-alcoholic beers or wines which contain less than .5% of alcohol.

  • An applicant with a revocation of 10 years, except those under revocation, must wait at least twenty-four (24) months as a prerequisite to admission into the program and must not have driven within the twelve (12) months prior to reinstatement. An applicant with a revocation of 10 years, except those under permanent revocation, must have not used any drugs or alcohol for at least the past twelve (12) months. Drugs include alcohol and non-alcoholic beers or wines which contain less than .5% of alcohol.

  • Customers under permanent license revocation for four or more DUI convictions, for DUI Manslaughter with a prior DUI conviction or for murder resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle must wait 5 years prior to application and after conviction or release from incarceration which ever occurs last. No driving for past 5 years prior to application and after conviction or release from incarceration which ever occurs last. No drinking (including so called non-alcoholic beers and wines) for past 5 years prior to application and after conviction or release from incarceration which ever occurs last. No mind altering drugs, inhalants, non-prescribed prescription drugs, or abuse of over the counter drugs or prescriptions.

  • Under section 322.271 Florida Statutes, the DHSMV, Division of Driver Licenses, will perform a field investigation regarding the Special Supervision applicant driving and drinking behaviors, and that the results of this investigation shall be considered by the DHSMV to determine if any restricted driver license/permit shall be issued.

  • Per Administrative Rule, an applicant shall be evaluated and supervised by the DUI program which serves the county in which the applicant resides, the county in which the applicant is employed, or the county in which the applicant attends school.

  • Forms requesting information for entrance into the DUI Special Supervision Services, and any subsequent forms will be required to be filled out in their entirety.

  • Supervision of the DUI Special Supervision Services by Florida law for the remaining period of the driver license revocation with the provision that your restricted driver license remains in good standing with the DHSMV, Division of Driver Licenses is required.

  • Treatment for alcohol and/or drug problems may be required.

  • Releases of information will be required for community agencies, hospitals, or any organization or person who provided services.
