The Duval County Clerk of Courts is proud to announce it will be holding another Operation Green Light Event. Joining with nearly 60 other Clerk’s Offices from around the State of Florida, Operation Green Light is a special program that allows individuals who have overdue traffic tickets or criminal fees to pay in full while waiving the 40% collection fee. The goal of Operation Green Light is to help the community by allowing individuals who are delinquent in fines and fees to make those payments and also have their driver’s licenses reinstated by offering convenient options, both in person at the Clerk’s Office or online from the comfort of your own home.
Dates and Times
In recognition of the difficulty some face coming in to pay traffic tickets or criminal fees during the workweek, the Clerk’s Office is pleased to kick off Operation Green Light by extending office hours Saturday, October 12th from 9:00am to 2:00pm for event participants only. Operation Green Light will then continue throughout the week of Monday, October 14th through Friday, October 18th at both the Duval County Courthouse and the Beaches location (1543 Atlantic Blvd, Neptune Beach, FL 32266). Operating hours during the week for both locations will be 8:00am to 5:00pm for this event.

REINSTATEMENT of DRIVER'S LICENSE
Those paying off fines may be able to restore their driving privileges once the outstanding fines and late fees are paid providing there are no other pending issues on the driving record. We are partnering with the Duval County Tax Collector’s Office to allow our customers the opportunity to reinstate a suspended license. As part of the Saturday event on October 12, the Tax Collector will open the Yates Branch (231 E. Forsyth St.) downtown from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to assist with driver’s license reinstatements and issue driver’s licenses. All Duval County Tax Collector branch locations will be open during regular business hours for the remainder of the Clerk Operation Green Light Event.
For more information about reinstating your license, please visit the Duval County Tax Collector's Driver License Information page.
TO SPEED UP YOUR VISIT:
- Prior to the event, it is very important that YOU obtain a copy of your driving record to identify the citations that are required to be paid to reinstate your driver license. BE SURE TO BRING YOUR DRIVING RECORD WITH YOU.
- You may obtain a copy of your driving record in one of the following ways:
- Go to Tax Collector's Office (Fee of $6.25 applies)
- Visit Driver License Check and ID Tracking site.
- For either method you must have your driver license number or Florida identification card number to proceed.
If all outstanding citations have been satisfied and there are no other pending issues on your driving record, you may reinstate at the Clerk’s Office by paying an additional $60.00 reinstatement fee.
Why is the Clerk’s office doing this?
- We want to help the thousands of people in North Florida who have criminal fines and traffic tickets that have resulted in their license being suspended.
- By waiving the 40% collections surcharge for tickets that are more than 90 days overdue, people can save money.
- During Operation Green Light, we will have convenient Saturday hours where anyone can pay their overdue tickets, or their Felony or Misdemeanor fines and save money. They may also have their suspended license reinstated.
- No, all late fees associated with overdue tickets or interest on criminal fines are statutorily required and must still be paid, regardless of whether the ticket was sent to collections.
- Only the 40% collections surcharge will be waived for those whose cases have been turned over to a collection agency.
- Absolutely! You may register online for Operation Green Light using the online form.
- Make sure you hurry though because online registration ends on Friday, October 18 at noon. After that you will need to participate in Operation Green Light in person.
