Driver’s License Suspensions:

Q:  My driver’s license is scheduled for suspension during the time the courthouses are closed to the public. How can I resolve my case while the courthouses are closed to the public?

A: see below

  • The Courts and Clerk of Courts will not be issuing driver’s license suspensions during the period that the courthouses are closed to the public due to COVID-19.
  • Please visit the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida for Administrative Order 20-04 and all subsequent administrative orders. All deadlines that fall within the time that the courthouses are closed to the public are extended until further order of the court.

  • If a driver’s license suspension is related to outstanding traffic citations
    • Drivers have a 30-day window from the date the citation was issued to elect to pay the citation, register for traffic school, or set it for court.
    • If the driver elected to pay the citation, please see Payments for the Clerk's On-line and Automated Phone Service payment options.
    • If the driver chooses to set the case for court, those previously scheduled court dates that fall within the time the courthouses are closed to the public due to COVID-19 will be re-scheduled and you will be notified for a Remote Hearing via video/phone appearance.
  • For additional questions regarding outstanding traffic citations and driver’s license suspensions, please call the Clerk's Automated Phone Service at 305-275-1111.
