Requirements for Obtaining or Renewing your Florida Driver’s License
The requirements to obtain a new or to renew a drivers license in Florida have become stringent. Please make sure that you have all the documents required prior to attempting to either renew or obtain a new Florida Driver’s License. Note that if you renew late, you will have to pay a fine.Your name has to be consistent in the identification you provide. If not, you may have to change your name to the name you are currently using. I.e., maybe you’re using a name that is different from your birth certificate or your name on your social security card.All persons requesting a new or renewed driver’s license must present the following:
- Proof of Identification
- Proof of social security number
- Proof of residential address
We are seeing an increase in the number of clients whose name must be legally changed prior to obtaining their driver’s license. Visit /CM/Family-Law/Name-Changes.asp for more information on our name change services or contact our office at (813) 672-1900, if you reside or work in Hillsborough County.
Furthermore, if you want to obtain a Florida I.D. Card, these same requirements apply and, unfortunately, you cannot obtain an I.D. online.
