In Florida, the Sunshine State, it is quite simple to get your driver's license. All you have to do is complete a TLSAE course, pass a driving and theoretical exam, present your paperwork and that will be it!

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

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 be able to apply for the Learners License, the individual must complete a Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education course (TLSAE). After complying with it, he or she will make an appointment at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHMSV), where the officer will request all the necessary documentation. The driver will have to pass a vision and hearing examination, if everything is Ok, the last step required is to pay the fee to access the knowledge test.

Required Documents to apply for a Learners License

  • 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.

  • It is not allowed to drive at night during the first 3 months of the license. After this period, 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

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.

Florida Bill of Sale

It is known that at the time to purchase a new vehicle, there is a lot of paperwork to go through. During the last few years there have been some incidents when selling/buying a car. There have been cases of fraud, theft or simply mistakes that have led people to lose extra money and waste their time.

In Florida, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) highly recommend that, at the moment of buying or selling your vehicle, the owner and the buyer protect themselves by completing the Bill of Sale Document. This form is not legally required by the DMV officers, and in any case it is a replacement of the Title transfer, but this document works as a backup form. 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. 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 Vehicle details, the Certificate of title number, the current kilometer the vehicle has made, the personal information of both parts, the price of the vehicle and the current date.

Benefits for the Seller of the Vehicle

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 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 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 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

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

Renewal Personally

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.

Bear in mind that if you have not renewed your driver's license personally since January 1st, 2010, you will need to bring 1 form of primary ID, 2 proofs of your current address and your social security number. Once you attend to your appointment, the officer will require all the paperwork, including your ID, proof of address and if you have changed your name, 2 different proofs of your new name.

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. Depending on the specific situation of the driver, some kinds of tests will be mandatory, but for now, to be able to renew this license, you will only be required to pass a vision examination. 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.

In a force majeure situation it is impossible for the soldier to renew their license, there are 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.

The state of Florida will allow some exemptions for those soldiers who are outside the State and cannot apply for the online renovation. This will be permitted until the soldier comes back to Florida to reside.



307 NW 5th Avenue #B 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.

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.

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.
