Drive Legal New Online Portal Now Live

 

 

The Miami-Dade Courts’ Drive Legal Program new online portal is now live at: https://drivelegal.jud11.flcourts.org

The online portal allows allow individuals to apply to the program from their computer, tablet or other electronic device without having to come to court.

Drive Legal helps those with outstanding traffic citations by removing any collection fees that may have been applied and reducing total amounts owed through various options, including the performance of community service hours and the establishment of payment plans. The program also reduces points on a license by assigning traffic schools.

Those who had their licenses suspended due to outstanding traffic citations, as well as those who are struggling to pay their traffic citations and may be in danger of a future license suspension may apply to Drive Legal for assistance.

The online portal is the result of a collaboration between the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, the Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts, and the Miami-Dade Information Technology Department and allows qualified applicants to start on the path to a valid license immediately, no longer waiting days or weeks for their in-person appointment with a Drive Legal counselor. A $10 case research fee is required to apply, and, if the individual qualifies for the program, the research fee is reduced from their Drive Legal enrollment fee.

“Drive Legal’s new online capabilities will greatly assist the public by saving them from having to request leave from their jobs, travel to the courthouse, and pay parking fees,” said Judge Steve Leifman, Associate Administrative Judge of the County Criminal Division. “It also reduces wait times for receiving service from Drive Legal and for being able to make payments.”

Those who are currently waiting for an appointment with a Drive Legal counselor are encouraged to create an account through the portal for faster service.

“We are happy to offer this new online service for the community, and we will continue to look for ways to make the Miami-Dade Courts and its programs more accessible to the public,” said Chief Judge Bertila Soto.
