Operation Green Light

Clerk of the Court and Comptroller Juan Fernandez-Barquin, Esq., Announces Operation Green Light April 10th to April 30th, 2024

Miami, FL – Juan Fernandez Barquin, Esq., Clerk of the Court and Comptroller for Miami-Dade County, announces Operation Green Light, a driver license reinstatement event to reduce the number of driver license suspensions and provide our community an opportunity to save on collection fees.

“This initiative reduces the burden on our residents who want to do the right thing by paying back their court obligations,” said Fernandez-Barquin. “During this time period, I have authorized my office to waive collection fees which lowers the residents’ obligations and provides them the ability to establish a payment program if necessary, so that driver licenses can be reinstated. The goal of Operation Green Light is to help as many of our residents as we can during this period.”

Typically, a driver license suspension occurs when an individual has unpaid traffic tickets, fails to comply, or appear at a traffic summons, point suspensions and more.
