Good afternoon. Yes, if you were to get pulled over in Florida, they would run your name and see that your Fl license is suspended. At that point, they could either write you a citation for driving on a suspended license with knowledge and let you go, requiring that you appear in court or they could arrest you. Moreover, the fact that you have a DL from another country does not allow you to legally drive in Florida when the State suspended your license.
