Free Driver’s License Reinstatement Clinic
Residents in Orange County can learn how to reinstate their driver’s license and get a jumpstart on breaking down one barrier to holding a job, obtaining housing, or by seeking medical care – having a valid driver’s license.
Having a suspended or revoked drivers license can severely limit someone living in a county where a car is necessary. Many residents in Orange County face this issue and are unable to drive themselves to interviews, places of employment, or health care providers for treatment. Without means of adequate transportation, many are not able to break the barriers of unemployment and even homelessness.
Orlando has dedicated many resources to house the homeless population, but unfortunately, some struggle to preserve the housing provided to them because they cannot prove financial stability. For many, it is difficult to seek out and hold down jobs that will allow them to sustain themselves financially due to having a revoked or suspended license.
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 are joining forces to help residents reinstate their drivers license in Orange County, Florida. The clinic will be held at the Orange County Courthouse Jury Room over two days in August. On Friday, August 24 registered participants with last names starting A through K will be seen and on Friday, August 31 residents with last names starting L through Z. The clinic will begin at 8:30 a.m. on each date. Registered participants will be assigned a time slot upon registration.
Pre-registration is open for the clinic. Interested residents should register through Eventbrite at www.dlclinic2018.eventbrite.com.
