Operation Green Light offers savings to reinstate driver's licenses
If your driver's license is suspended, Operation Green Light offers you the opportunity to get back on the road by addressing overdue court obligations while saving money in additional fees.
The event will be Friday, March 6, 2020, from 9AM to 1PM at the George Edgecomb Courthouse, , 800 E Twiggs Street in downtown Tampa. Pre-registration is required and some restrictions apply. Participation is limited to the first 250 qualified registrants, first come, first served.
Applicants will be notified by mail if they are eligible to participate based on their pre-registration information. Judges will review the applicant’s case history and determine if any court fines or fees can be reduced.
Eligible drivers who pay their debts will be able to reinstate their driving privileges the same day in most cases. The Florida Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will be at the George Edgecomb Courthouse to issue new licenses to qualified drivers. DMV fees will apply.
