The Bureau of Administrative Reviews is a division of the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) that handles driver's license suspensions, issuance of work-purposes/business-purposes licenses ("hardship" licenses), and other DUI-related driver's license issues.
The Bureau of Administrative Reviews will also handle matters related to point suspensions or Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) designations.
If you need to obtain a hardship license, the Bureau of Administrative Reviews is where you need to go. Not the "regular" DMV Office.
If you get a DUI in Florida, you have ten days to save your license or else it may be suspended without you being able to obtain a hardship license (known as a hard suspension).
This hard suspension period can range from 30 days and even longer depending on whether you have prior DUIs.
This is part of the DUI Administrative Hearing process and it is critical that you be mindful of the strict time requirements.
Your DUI attorney can handle the administrative process for you, but in the event you need to go to the Bureau of Administrative Reviews, here are the office locations, phone numbers, and email addresses for every Bureau of Administrative Reviews office in Florida.

Please bear in mind that not every Florida city or county has a Bureau of Administrative Reviews office. Only the major metropolitan areas have these offices. But each office handles multiple areas. You would want to contact the office in the city closest to you. For instance, if you received a DUI in the Florida Keys (Monroe County), the Miami Bureau of Administrative Reviews Office handles that county.
If you receive a DUI, you need to contact a Florida DUI attorney right away to discuss your options and the steps you need to take to protect your license!
