This is because your license can be suspended for things other than a ticket or criminal infraction such as drunk driving.
Suspended for Lack of Auto Insurance
Florida has minimum car insurance requirements that must be met for any vehicles that have a valid license plate. These requirements are at least $10,000 of coverage for personal injury protection (PIP) and $10,000 in property damage liability (PDL).
If you do not have this minimum auto insurance coverage your drivers license can be suspended for up to three years or until proof of Florida auto insurance is provided. In addition to providing proof of auto insurance you will be required to pay a fee of $150 to $500.
Not Completing Traffic School
