What Happens If You Pay A Speeding Ticket Late?
In Florida, you generally have 30 days to pay your fine to the Clerk of Courts office in the county where you received the traffic citation. You’ll need to either plead guilty and pay the fines or fight your traffic ticket in court. If you miss the deadline, it is possible that your driver’s license will be suspended indefinitely. To regain your driving privileges, you must either pay your traffic ticket, or schedule a court date. Once you satisfy the requirements established by the traffic court, you must provide proof to your local Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) driver licensing office and pay a reinstatement fee.
Will I Have To Go To Traffic School?
When you commit a traffic violation in Florida, points are placed on your driver’s license. If you accumulate a certain number of points within a specific time frame, your driver’s license will be revoked or suspended. To avoid accumulating points and driver’s license suspension, you have the option of going to traffic school. Available both in the classroom and online, traffic school teaches your defensive driving techniques and how to improve your driving habits. However, there are some circumstances where a driver is required by the Florida DMVW or court to attend a driver improvement course. Failure to complete the course could result in the cancellation of your license and fines.
Will I Go To Jail For Not Paying A Ticket?
Failure to pay a traffic ticket will not directly lead to jail; however, getting caught driving with a suspended license—stemming from an unpaid traffic ticket—can be a felony offense in Florida.

Our experience with Florida traffic ticket problems will allow us to look at your past tickets.
