Special Supervision Services

This program is available for approved applicants to obtain a hardship driver's license. To apply for this State Approved service per Florida Statute 322.271(2)(G)-(4)(e)& Florida Administrative Rule 15A.10, a person must meet the eligibility requirements.

Persons meeting the statutory eligibility requirements must contact the Department Highway Safety Motor Vehicle Bureau of Administrative Review (Department) on Wilson Blvd. to apply for a hardship hearing.

Following the hearing, the Department  will issue a letter of eligibility if the requirements are met.

After receiving the letter of eligibility, the person will need to contact the nearest Department-Approved DUI program offering Special Supervision Services for screening and application into the program.

If an applicant is accepted into the SSS program and is granted a hardship license, he/she must remain under supervision of the program for the duration of the revocation period and must assume all costs of supervision.

If anyone in the SSS program fails to comply with the required supervision, the SSS program will report the failure to the Department and the Department will cancel the person's driving privilege.
