(b) Appearance After Notice Sent. If the defendant appears before the clerk after notice was sent but before the department suspends the driver license, the clerk shall notify the department immediately after the defendant satisfies the penalty imposed by the official together with additional penalties as required by sections 318.15 and 318.18, Florida Statutes.
(c) Reinstatement of License. If the defendant appears before the clerk after the department suspends the driver license, the defendant must satisfy the penalty and, any other penalties required by section 318.15 and 318.18, Florida Statutes.
