License

Getting the driver's license in the Sunshine State is quite simple . All you must do is to complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course, pass the driving and theoretical exam, and present all the required paperwork.

Depending if the driver is young with no experience, or if the driver has experience behind the wheel, there are different kinds of licences.

Class E - Learners license

Drivers between 15 and 18 years old must apply for their first driver's license called: class E - Learners license. Graduated Driver License laws (GDL) establish this first step for those inexperienced people who are starting to learn how to drive.

To apply for the Learners License, the interested person must complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course (TLSAE). After complying with this,it is necessary to make an appointment to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHMSV), where the officer will ask you to present all the documentation. The driver will have to pass a vision and hearing examination, if it is successful, the last step will be paying the fee to access the knowledge test.

What Documents do you need to apply to the Learners License?

  • ID or Passport
  • Social Security Number
  • Document that Proof your Residential address
  • Parental consent for a driver application of a minor - If you are under 18
  • Proof of Legal residence in the US for all of those drivers who are not American citizens.

Restrictions of the Learners License:

  • ou must drive under the supervision of an adult of 21 years old, or older, in possession of a current driver's license.
  • During the first 3 months of the license, there is a restriction to drive at night. After this first period, it is permitted to drive during the night up to 10PM.

After obtaining your first Learners License, the driver will have 1 year to obtain an intermediate or full privilege license. If this is not accomplished and the license expires, the driver must renew the learners license again.

Intermediate Driver License

As established by the Graduated Driver License laws (GDL),this is the second step: you must obtain the Intermediate Driver's License before the expiration date of your Learners license. With this license you can use the vehicle with non supervision, but there are still some restrictions that apply until you turn 18 years old.

To apply for the Intermediate License, the interested person must complete a full year of holding the Learners license with no traffic violations. It is necessary to count with 50 hours of driving practise, 10 of which must be during night time. After complying with this,it is necessary to make an appointment to the Service Center of the DHMSV, where the officer will ask you to present all the necessary documentation. The driver will have to pass the Driving exam, and if it is successful, he or she must surrender his/her learners license in order to obtain the new one.

Necessary Documents to apply for an Intermediate License

It is very important that the driver presents the form: Certification of Driving Experience of a Minor (HSMV 71142). This paper will be filled up by the parent/driving instructor in the presence of a Notary Public or officer from the Driver License Center.

If you are over 18 years old, and have never held a Driver's license, you can apply for a Full privilege License without working the steps mentioned before. However, if you prefer to have supervised driving for a period of time, you are allowed to get your full license starting from a learners step.

After this, it is necessary to make an appointment to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHMSV), where the officer will ask you to present all the required documentation. The driver will have to pass a vision and hearing examination, and a Knowledge and driving test. If it is successful, the last step will be paying the fee (if apply), take the Picture for the new license and surrender any other kind of license he or she owns.

The driver will have to pass a vision and hearing examination. If it is successful, the last step will be to pay the fee, take the Picture for the new license and surrender the out of state license he or she owns.

Once the driver complies with all the requirements above, he or she will obtain a Full Privilege Florida Drivers License. This License will be valid for 8 years and it will expire on the driver's birthday.

Holders of a License from another country outside the US.

If you are coming from another country, the necessary steps to obtain your Florida Drivers license are similar to the ones you should follow when applying for a new Driver's license. Except if you are coming from Canada or Germany, (where you will only have to take a driving and Knowledge test), France, South Korea and Taiwan.

To apply for the Florida driver’s license, the driver has to make an appointment to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHMSV), where the officer will ask you to present all the required documentation. The driver will have to pass a vision and hearing examination. If required he or she will have to take the Knowledge and Driving test. After this, the last step will be to pay the fee, take the Picture for the new license and surrender the out of state license he or she owns (If required).

Bill of Sale

When selling or buying a vehicle, you must be familiarized with the paperwork you must go through when doing the transaction, there are a lot of forms you must complete correctly. This last couple of years left some evidence of the most common incidents when selling or buying a vehicle. There are a lot of intentional or unintentional mistakes that can lead you to fraud or theft. One simple mistake can lead you to lose money and waste your time trying to fix things up.

When buying or selling a car, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) highly recommends that the owner and the new buyer protect themselves by filling up the Bill of Sale Document. Even though this paper is not legally required, and in any case it replaces the Title transfer, it is a very good choice to fill up the Bill of Sale to protect both parts of the transaction: The Buyer and the Seller.

Its official name is “Notice of Sale and/or Bill of Sale for a Motor Vehicle, Mobile Home, Off-Highway Vehicle or Vessel”. This document can be downloaded from the official DHSMV website. This form is a very good backup to avoid you any possible problems in the future.

What is the purpose of this paper?

The Bill of Sale is beneficial for both parts, as it protects the Seller and the Buyer. This paper serves as a proof of the transaction made and the transfer of responsibilities form one part to the other one.

At the moment of the sale, it is necessary that the current owner of the vehicle is the first one to complete this paper and sign it, before the buyer.

To correctly complete the form, the seller must include all the Vehicle details, the Certificate of title number, the current kilometer count of the vehicle, the personal information of both parts, the vehicle`s price and the current date.

Benefits for Sellers

The Bill of Sale protects the seller of the vehicle in case there is any infraction or new ticket once the vehicle is driven by the new owner. It is a proof of non responsibility over the vehicle.

Once the purchase is completed, you must notify the tax collector’s office (DMV Office), to inform them about the sale. Once the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is informed, they will proceed to cancel the registration of the vehicle under your name and keep the vehicle on hold until the buyer’s notification arrives. Once the new notification is received, they will register the vehicle under the buyers name.

Benefits for Buyers

The Bill of Sale also protects you as the buyer of the vehicle. After the purchase is completed and from that date forward. For example: if any infraction or old ticket of the vehicle arrives to you, but the date of those infractions are from the time you didn’t own the vehicle, the document will excuse you from the responsibility over those tickets. The Bill of Sale proves that the vehicle at that time was the responsibility of the previous owner.

Once the transaction has been completed, the Buyer should notify the new acquisition to the tax collector’s office. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will cancel the registration of the vehicle for the Seller’s name and register the vehicle under the name of its new owner. Please bear in mind that a sales tax payment will be required at this time. The new owner will only have 30 days to register the vehicle under his/her name after the sale. After this time period there will be a penalty fee due to the late transfer.



Florida Drivers License Renewal

In Florida the Drivers License will be valid for a period no longer than 8 years. The expiration date will be on the driver’s birthday. In Florida, it is allowed to renew this license up to 18 months before its expiration date.

There are some situations where the renewal will not be possible due to eligibility, traffic violations not solved in court, or cases of suspended, cancelled or revoked licenses. In this scenario, it is possible that the driver must comply with a new training and/or start over step by step to achieve a brand new license.

The State of Florida allows different ways to renew your license:

Renewal Online

Renewing your license online is the most easy, fast and convenient way to do it. There is an exception applied to the Commercial Drivers License that does not allow its renovation online. This service is only available for American citizens or permanent US residents. If you choose this option, please bear in mind that you will not be allowed to use it if the last renewal was made online, by mail or by phone.

Renewal in Person

This is the winning option in most of the cases. All you need to do is to make an appointment at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) service’s center and bring all the required paperwork.

It is probable that you may have to pass a vision test (If applicable) and you`ll have to surrender your expired Driver’s license.

Once you attend your appointment, the officer will require all the paperwork, including your ID, proof of address and if you have changed your name, two different proofs of your new name. Bear in mind that if you have not renewed your driver's license in person since January 1st, 2010, you will need to bring one form of primary ID, two proofs of your current address and your social security number.

Real ID and the Driver’s License.

Starting from October 1st 2021, all the renewal of the drivers licenses in Florida will be issued complying with the Real ID standards. If you need to renew your license within this period of time, bear in mind that you will have to do the renovation in person. To avoid double paperwork and assure the renovation under the new security standards from the Real ID, ask the advice from a FLHSMV’s officer.

Renewal for special situations

Older and Senior Drivers - Requirements

Drivers above 80 years old will hold a Driver's license with a validity of 6 years. To be able to renew this license, the driver will be required to pass a vision examination. Depending on the specific situation of the driver, other kinds of tests may also be mandatory. Before scheduling an appointment for the renewal, please contact the FLHSMV for further information.

Military personnel - Requirements

All Military personnel can apply for the renewal of their driver's license up to 18 months before its expiration date. Before completing the online application for the renewal, please contact the FLHSMV for more information.

115 N. Summit St. Offices

The Department of Motorized Vehicles provides a wide range of possible communication channels to help and assist citizens all over the State of Florida.

The last couple of years, there has been a depreciation of some of the DMV offices outside Miami, Broward and Volusia. For this reason there has been a restructuring of the office's location across the State.

For this reason, the DMV focused their effort on centralizing the services in some places and merging the services with the tax collectors offices in other places where the demand was lower. It is necessary to mention that despite this, the DMV offices have never lost their quality and speed at the time to manage the citizens' formalities.
