What Is a D6 Clearance?

In the state of Florida, a D6 clearance is a form to show that a person has been cleared pending court requirements. A person is given a D6 suspension if he or she fails to appear in court after getting a civil traffic infraction or a criminal citation.

If the driving license is suspended indefinitely, the individual must visit the court from which the traffic summons was received. The person must provide a “satisfaction” by paying the cost of the ticket as well as a reinstatement fee. The DMV will then issue the individual a D6 clearance form. The person must present the form to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to have the license reinstated.
