Renewal in Calhoun county

Florida Drivers License Renewal

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.

You should observe some exemptions, when the renewal will not be possible, for example: in the case where a license has been suspended, cancelled or revoked; or due to eligibility, unsolved traffic violations. In all of these scenarios, it is possible that the DMV requests you 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:

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.

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.
