IMPORTANT: Did your DUI occur outside of Florida or on an out of state license?

If so, contact our office before registering online. Every state has different DUI requirements and contacting our office before registering will allow our staff to assist you in meeting the specific requirements of each state involved. Failure to contact our office before registration may result in fees and delays in completing each state's requirements and may subsequently affect you obtaining and/or status of your driver license. To speak to a representative call : (727) 442-0233 ext. 541

Registration may be done in-person at either of our two (2) locations (days and times vary by location) or pre-registration through our secure on-line service. Persons registering for the Pinellas County DUI Program must live, work, or attend school in the county.

  • Proof of positive identification (if available) - Drivers License, Florida ID Card, Work ID, or Military ID.

We understand that your time is valuable. By using our secure on-line pre-registration service you will considerably reduce in-person time.

Assistance can be provided to those individuals who have trouble reading and/or English is not their primary language.

Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most common occupational diseases. Always wear your recommended equipment to prevent hearing loss (canal caps, earplugs or earmuffs), which may vary depending on the noise level and work environment. If you are uncertain, ask. If you have to shout over noise to be heard on or off the job, that noise could be damaging your hearing.
