Orange County residents who have a suspended or revoked drivers license are often faced with an insurmountable, or at least more difficult, hurdle when applying for jobs or trying to access health care. This can lead to, or exacerbate, unemployment or homelessness.
To address this issue, Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida (CLSMF), the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, the Orange County Clerk of Courts, the Department of Revenue, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and other state and local agencies have combined their efforts to help residents reinstate their drivers license in Orange County, Florida through a Drivers License Reinstatement Clinic.
The first part of the clinic was held on August 24, 2018, and serviced approximately 500 people in the Orange County Courthouse Jury Room, to learn about why their license was suspended or revoked and what they could do to have it reinstated. Approximately 20 people left the clinic having fixed their issues and holding a reinstated drivers license in their hand.
The second day of the clinic will be held at the Orange County Courthouse Jury Room on Friday, August 31, serving already registered residents with last names starting L through Z. Walk-in participants will be accepted, time permitting but are encouraged to come around 8:30 a.m. to ensure they have a chance of being seen.
The clinic will begin at 8:30 a.m.
Dates for future clinics will be released in the coming weeks.
