People who lost their driving privileges because of citations, unpaid child support or fees can get back behind the wheel legally at the Driver’s License Reinstatement Expo on Oct. 25-29 and Nov. 1-5 at the Duval County Courthouse.
Organized by the Duval County Clerk of Courts, the goal of the event is to provide a one-stop shop for residents to determine how to restore their driving privileges.
Participating agencies include the 4th Judicial Circuit, the 4th Judicial Circuit State Attorney, the 4th Judicial Circuit Public Defender, Florida Department of Revenue, Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department, Duval County Tax Collector and the Salvation Army of Northeast Florida.
“By bringing together all of the relevant agencies under one roof, we hope to offer a convenient opportunity where participants can take care of anything preventing them from getting back on the road,” Duval County Clerk Jody Phillips said in a news release.
Preregistration is required. The clerk’s office will research each situation and contact the participant to explain the process and set up an appointment to come to the courthouse or to appear online via Zoom.
The program will not be able to assist people with licenses revoked, suspended or canceled because of out-of-county or out-of-state matters.
