12:32 PM PT -- A rep for the D.A.'s office tells TMZ Sports they will NOT be filing a formal probation violation against Jones.
"This will be dealt with by a sanction at the probation level and we will not be filing a formal probation violation," a rep for the D.A.'s office tells us.
Translation -- looks like Jones is in the clear.
Jon Jones is not worried about his traffic citations in New Mexico -- even though he's on probation -- telling TMZ Sports he is a FULLY LICENSED driver ... and he's confident everything will be cleared up.
As we previously reported, the UFC superstar was pulled over in Albuquerque last week -- and cited for not having his driver's license on him, no proof of insurance and no registration.
It's a dicey situation since he's on probation and was specifically ordered to obey all laws -- and could face serious jail time if his probation is revoked.
But Jon's rep, Denise White, tells TMZ Sports ... Jon has a perfectly good explanation and expects the charges to be tossed out.
"Jon Jones was pulled over for a minor traffic infraction, he was cited for not having proof of insurance and license on him. He will appear in traffic court this week when it will most likely be dismissed since he is fully licensed and insured."
