Florida 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.

There are different kinds of licences depending if you are young with no experience, or if you are a senior driver.

Drivers License Class E

Learners license

Drivers between 15 and 18 years old must apply for this first driver's license called: class E - Learners License. The Graduated Driver License law (GDL) establishes this as the first step for those inexperienced drivers who are starting to learn how to drive.

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.

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

  • ID
  • Social Security Number
  • Residential address
  • Parental consent for a driver application of a minor - If under 18
  • If you are not a US citizen: Proof of Legal residence in the US.

Learners License restrictions:

  • The minor must drive under the supervision of a responsible adult over 21 years old with a valid driver's license.
  • 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 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 (Teen) Driver License

The Graduated Driver License laws (GDL), establishes this as the second step: the driver must obtain the Intermediate Driver's License before the Learners license expires. In this second stage, the driver can use the vehicle with non supervision, but there are still some restrictions to follow up until the driver turns 18 years of age.

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.

How to transfer your Driver's License to the Florida Driver’s License.

Holders of a License from another State in the US.

If a Driver up to 16 years old, with a current valid Driver's license needs to transfer their out of state license to a Florida one, the only requirement will be to pass a Vision and Hearing examination.

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.

Florida Bill of Sale

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.

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.

Purpose of the form

The Bill of Sale is beneficial for both of the parts. During a certain period of time it protects the Seller and the Buyer part. This form works as a proof of the transaction and the legal change of responsibilities from the seller to the buyer.

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 at the moment of the sale.

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.

What are the Benefits for the Seller part?

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 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.

What are the Benefits for the Buyer part?

The Bill of Sale also protects the buyer of the vehicle after the purchase and from that date on. In the case any infraction or old ticket of the vehicle is found at the time the vehicle was the responsibility of the previous owner, the Bill of Sale will prove that the responsibility over the vehicle at that time was over 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 Florida your Drivers License will be valid for a period no longer than 8 years. The expiration date will be on the day of your birthday. In Florida, it is allowed to renew your license up to 18 months before the 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 are different ways to renew your license in Florida:

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 in Person

In most of the cases this is the chosen option. All the driver needs to do is to schedule an appointment at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) service’s center and bring all the necessary paperwork.

You may also have to pass a vision test (If applicable) and then, 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

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.

Requirements for Military personnel

All Military personnel can renew their driver's license up to 18 months before its expiration. In the case when a soldier is outside the State and the renewal cannot be done online, the State of Florida will allow some exemptions.

Under certain circumstances, the License’s validity will be extended for 90 days after its expiration date. Or untill the driver comes back to Florida to reside. Before filling your online application for the renewal, please contact the FLHSMV for more information.



229 SW Pinckney Street, Room 102 Offices

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

In the last couple of years, some of the DMV offices outside Miami, Broward and Volusia have suffered a depreciation of its services. For this reason a restructuring plan for the office's location across the State has been necessary.

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.
