Check the Status of Your Driver's License
The State of Florida has a site where you can find out if your license is valid by just entering your license number. If your license is not valid, a brief explanation of why and some instructions will display. Not all invalid license issues can be dealt with by the Clerk's office. Some may involve the Department of Motor Vehicles, and for others, you must contact the Clerk for the county in which the violation occurred. Check the status of your driver's license.
Reinstate Your License
If your license is suspended for failure to pay a civil infraction in Polk County, you may pay the fine amount owing plus the assessed delinquent fee, at one of the Clerk's locations. The Clerk's office can assist you in reinstating your license for those that the Clerk issued, except for those dealing with child support and financial responsibility. You will need to go to a driver license office for reinstatement, and a reinstatement fee will be required.
Get Your Driver's License Transcript
Residents can purchase copies of their driver's license transcripts, which contain the driver's history information, from the Clerk's office.
Either a three-year history transcript or a seven-year history transcript may be purchased for a fee at any of our locations. A person can only request and/or purchase their own driver license transcript and must present a valid form of identification with both a valid picture and signature.
