There are two types of traffic citations: a civil traffic infraction and a criminal traffic violation. Traffic citations contain a combination of seven numbers and letters.
Civil Traffic Infractions
Issued citations are reported to other states, therefore citations received in the County may affect the records of driver licenses issued in other states. If you need a clearance for a citation, you may call (305) 275-1111 to obtain a clearance. A $7 fee will be charged.
If you live outside the State of Florida or the United States, it is advisable to check online periodically until the information is in the system. Use the information pamphlet given to you by the officer for assistance.
