Hardship License Prohibited:
1. Florida law prohibits any hardship reinstatement upon 2nd or subsequent suspension for test refusal or if driver has been convicted of (DUI) section 316.193, F.S., two or more times.

Since you cannot afford an attorney, and because you have made a significant effort to rehabilitate yourself and help others, it is possible that you may be able to obtain the assistance of a pro bono (free) lawyer to assist you. Try contacting Florida Legal Services, Inc., a non-profit pro bono attorney service which provides assistance to indigent people in need of legal assistance. Contact information is available at:
