Sarasota County ~ Operation Green Light is a statewide Driver License reinstatement event program will take place from November 19th thru the 21st. 

When participating in Operation Green Light, take these steps to ensure you will be able to reinstate your driver’s license.

  1. Check Your Florida Driver’s License Status – Check the status of your Florida Driver’s License online by entering your driver’s license number. You will see the current status of your license, and what is affecting your license status.
  2. Check What You Owe in Sarasota County – Check your Sarasota County traffic and court records online to see what you owe. Begin by choosing “General Public User Access,” then follow the on-screen instructions to search for your ticket or case, and review the outstanding case fees.
  3. Decide which Operation Green Light Event and Location You Will Attend – Special, in-person weekday evening and Saturday hours are offered exclusively to help Operation Green Light customers save money and get back on the road.
