To apply for this Learners License, you must complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course (TLSAE). After that, you will have to make an appointment at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHMSV), where an officer will request you all the necessary documentation. You will have to pass a vision and hearing examination before taking the test, if everything is Ok, the last step required is to pay the fee to access the knowledge test.

  • There is a restriction to drive at night during the first 3 months of the license. After this time, it is permitted to drive up to 10PM.

After obtaining the first Learners License, the driver will have 1 year to obtain an intermediate or full privilege license. If the Learners license expires, the driver must renew it and do the process all over 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.

Bill of Sale in 120 Simpson Ave,, Room #111

Everyone is familiarized with the paperwork one must go through when purchasing a new vehicle, there are a lot of forms to comply. During the last couple of years there have been some incidents when selling/buying a vehicle. Fraud, theft or simply mistakes are around the corner, and have led people to lose more money and waste their time trying to fix things up.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) highly recommends that, at the moment of buying or selling a vehicle, the owner and the buyer protect themselves by completing the Bill of Sale Document. This paper is not legally required by the DMV officers, and in any case it replaces the Title transfer, but it is a very good backup form, as the Bill of Sale protects both parts of the transaction: The Buyer and the Seller.

The “Notice of Sale and/or Bill of Sale for a Motor Vehicle, Mobile Home, Off-Highway Vehicle or Vessel”, can be downloaded from the DHSMV site. This paper is a very good backup to avoid any future possible problems.

Purpose of the form

The Bill of Sale is beneficial for both of the parts. It protects the Seller and the Buyer during a certain period of time. This paper works as a proof of the transaction made and the change of responsibilities form one part to the other one.

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

To complete the form correctly, the seller must include the following information:

  • The Vehicle details.
  • The Certificate of title number.
  • The current kilometer of the vehicle.
  • The personal information of both parts.
  • The vehicle`s price of sale and the current date.

Benefits for Sellers

The Bill of Sale form protects the seller of the vehicle in any case where any infraction or new ticket arrives from the authorities and once the vehicle is driven by the new owner. It works as a proof of non responsibility over the vehicle.

Once the transaction has been completed, the seller should notify the tax collector’s office, to let them know about the sale. After this, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will cancel the registration of the vehicle under the Seller’s name and wait for the buyer’s notification to register the vehicle under the new owner’s name.

Benefits for the Buyer of the Vehicle

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.



Drivers License Renewal in 120 Simpson Ave,, Room #111

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

There are some exemptions, where the renewal will not be possible due to eligibility, unsolved traffic violations, or in the case where a license has been suspended, cancelled or revoked. In these different scenarios, it is possible that the DMV requests the driver to comply with a new training and/or to get a brand new license.

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

Online renewal

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 Personally

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

If you need to renew your license, keep in mind that you will have to do the renovation in person starting from October 1st 2021. From this day forward, all the renewal of the drivers licenses in Florida will be issued complying with the Real ID standards. To avoid double paperwork and assure the renovation is made under the new security standards from the Real ID. You may seek advice from a FLHSMV office.

Renewal for special situations

Older and Senior Drivers - Requirements

If you are 80 years old, or older, the DMV will issue a Driver's license for you with a validity of 6 years.

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. The state of Florida will allow some exemptions for those soldiers who are outside the State and cannot apply for the online renovation. There are also other types of extensions that may apply under certain circumstances. The DMV will allow the License’s validity to be extended for 90 days after its expiration date. This will be permitted until the driver comes back to Florida to reside. Before completing the online application for the renewal, please contact the FLHSMV for more information.



120 Simpson Ave,, Room #111 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.

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