Lake County Clerk launches program to help those with suspended driver’s licenses

The Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller is hosting a week-long event to help those with suspended driver’s licenses get back on the road while saving money on select overdue court obligations.

Dubbed “Operation Green Light,” this coordinated initiative hosted by Clerks’ Offices throughout the state will take place in Lake County from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Oct. 14-18 at the Lake County Courthouse, 550 W. Main St., First Floor, East Wing, in Tavares.

“Having a suspended license has a tremendous impact on the day-to-day lives of residents who are trying to travel to and from work or to the store,” said Gary Cooney, Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller. “During ‘Operation Green Light,’ our goal is to help customers get their license reinstated by offering incentives for paying in full, reducing the cost of the fees owed, or signing them up for payment plans.”

In most instances, those who pay their obligations in full, or sign up for a monthly payment plan, will be able to leave the Clerk’s Office with a valid driver’s license – all while saving money – Cooney said.
