FORT PIERCE, FLA. (Feb. 23, 2022) – Drivers with a suspended license or overdue traffic tickets may be eligible to get back on the road through the Clerk’s annual Operation Green Light event March 28 – April 1, 2022. Operation Green Light is an opportunity for customers to pay overdue court fees and fines, including traffic tickets, while saving the interest collection surcharge.
“In 2021 we were able to recall hundreds of cases, helping over 900 St. Lucie residents get back on the road, to work, and better able to care for their loved ones,” said Clerk Miller. “This year, we’ve expanded, offering evening appointments in Fort Pierce and St. Lucie West to serve our customers further.”
Customers can pay overdue court obligations at stlucieclerk.com/payments, in person, or by phone at 866-253-7528. Traffic tickets must be paid in full, but individuals with criminal court fees may still qualify for savings when signing up for a payment plan at stlucieclerk.com/paymentplan.
Operation Green Light appointments are now available and can be booked online or by calling 772-462-6900. When reserving an appointment, customers should have their driver license number, date of birth, and case number(s) on hand.
Once a driver is eligible to get their license back, they can schedule an appointment with the Tax Collector’s office at tcslc.com.
