Gather Go Get the FLORiDA Card

Gather. Go. Get

Beginning January 1, 2010, Florida has new documentation requirements for residents renewing or obtaining a new driver license or identification card. For office visits, you must bring original documents that prove your identity, social security number and residential address.

You must visit an office with these documents:

  • if you are applying for your first driver license or identification card
  • when your current credential expires and you have already used the one-time "convenience" renewal option
  • if you legally change your name (eg: by marriage or divorce)

If none of these apply then you can renew your license online, or by mail.

Remember: if you visit an office to obtain a driver license or ID card after January 1, 2010, you will need to meet the new requirements.
