BRADENTON, Fla. — The Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller is hosting Operation Green Light, a driver license reinstatement event, on Saturday, Oct. 12 from 8:30 a.m. – noon and Oct. 14 – Oct. 18 from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. for individuals looking to save on fees and have their license reinstated.
During Operation Green Light, Manatee County customers with suspended licenses will have an opportunity to pay overdue court obligations, including traffic tickets, and save up to 30 percent in additional fees. Customers may also be able to have suspended licenses reinstated.
“Operation Green Light is a very large coordinated effort on the part of all Florida Clerks,” said Angel Colonneso, the Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller. “This initiative can help get residents back in the driver’s seat. Some Clerks, including our office, offer commonsense payment plans, allowing customers to comply with court obligations and keep their license.”
The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will be on site with their Florida Licensing On Wheels (FLOW) vehicle to print new licenses on Saturday, Oct.12 during the event.
