What if I cannot pay my citation within 30 calendar days?

If you are unable to pay your ticket in full within the first 30 days, you may apply for a Payment Plan, or request a one-time 30 day extension to pay the fine. If a 30 day extension is received, and the ticket remains unpaid at the end of the 30 days, no further extensions will be granted and the defendant's driver's license will be suspended, costs will be assessed and the balance due may be referred to Collections. Once a notice has been sent to Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to suspend, the balance due must be paid in full to obtain a clearance letter.
