The goal of the clinic is to provide individuals with driver's license or the knowledge to obtain license so they can become confident, productive and engaged citizens. The clinic will not be able to assist those persons with licenses revoked, suspended or cancelled due to out-of-state matters. Additionally, the clinic will not address pending criminal charges or DUI suspensions.

Driver’s licenses may be suspended for a variety of reasons, including: 1) failure to pay traffic tickets; 2) the accumulation of too many points on one’s driving record; 3) failure to pay child support; 4) failure to pay or work off fines, fees, and costs imposed as part of a criminal sentence; 5) failure to maintain automobile insurance; 6) failure to register a vehicle or keep or renew the registration; 7) failure to obtain, renew, or return a car tag; or 8) designation as an habitual traffic offender. Licenses may also be revoked as a consequence of entering a plea to certain crimes, such as driving under the influence or certain drug-related offenses.

Convictions for driving while license suspended or revoked can carry serious consequences. A first offense is a second degree misdemeanor. A second offense can be charged as a first degree misdemeanor. A third or subsequent offense can be charged as a third degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please call Judge Mason's office at (850) 609-3880 and leave a detailed message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible. Please make sure to provide a valid phone number to receive the returned call.
