The St. Johns County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller will hold its annual Operation Green Light driver license reinstatement event on Monday, March 20, through Friday, March 24.
The event allows everyone with an outstanding fine in St. Johns County to pay overdue court obligations while saving on debt collection fees. The annual event aims to help residents pay their outstanding court-ordered obligations and restore their driving privileges.
Individuals with outstanding traffic tickets and court fines can pay their overdue fines sent to a debt collection agency and potentially save between 25–40 percent of the collection agency surcharge. Payment must be made in full to qualify for the savings.
Operation Green Light will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at the St. Johns County Courthouse (Richard O. Watson Judicial Center), 4010 Lewis Speedway, St. Augustine. In addition to in-person payment at the courthouse, payment can be made online at www.stjohnsclerk.com or by phone by calling 855-796-5764.
Since its inception, Operation Green Light has helped 824 drivers legally get back on the road. During last year’s event, our office assisted 337 St. Johns County residents to become eligible for driver license reinstatement and collected $45,004.
If all requirements are met, an individual whose case has not been sent to a collection agency may be eligible for a payment plan and reinstatement of their suspended driver license. Statutory and late charges will apply, and additional fees may be required for reinstatement with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
