Driver License Reinstatement Clinic

There will be a Driver License Clinic to assist individuals whose licenses have been revoked, suspended, or cancelled on Thursday, June 13, 2019, in the Jury Assembly Room of the Alachua County Criminal Justice Center. The goal of the clinic is to provide “one-stop shopping” for citizens to interact with the appropriate state agencies and/or the court, so they can determine how to regain their driving privileges. The clinic will not be able to assist those persons with licenses revoked, suspended or cancelled due to out-of-county or out-of-state matters. Additionally, the clinic will not address pending criminal charges.

Driver licenses may be suspended for a variety of reasons, including: 1) failure to pay traffic tickets; 2) the accumulation of too many points on one’s driving record; 3) failure to pay child support; 4) failure to pay or work off fines, fees, and costs imposed as part of a criminal sentence; 5) failure to maintain automobile insurance; 6) failure to register a vehicle or keep or renew the registration; 7) failure to obtain, renew, or return a car tag; or 8) designation as an habitual traffic offender. Licenses may also be revoked because of entering a plea to certain crimes, such as driving under the influence or certain drug-related offenses.
