COVID-19 UPDATE: Florida Driver Licenses and ID Cards Set to Expire Granted 30-Day Extension
By Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles // March 29, 2020
FLHSMV is encouraging Floridians who are able to complete their driver license transactions online
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – In response to COVID-19, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) is actively monitoring information from Centers for Disease Control and is working closely with the Florida Department of Health and other state partners.
We are committed to keeping our customers, team members, and partners informed, equipped, and safe.
At the direction of Governor Ron DeSantis, Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes has issued an Emergency Order extending all Florida driver licenses, commercial driver licenses and identification cards that will expire in the next 30 days.
All Florida driver licenses, commercial driving licenses and identification cards set to expire in the next 30 days will be granted a 30-day extension beyond their current expiration date.
The Executive Order authorizes the following:
• Extends the effective period of all driver licenses and identification cards that will expire between March 16, 2020, and April 15, 2020, for 30 days.
• Waives the delinquent renewal fees during the extension period for these driver licenses and identification cards.
In addition, FLHSMV is encouraging Floridians who are able to complete their driver license or motor vehicle transactions online to do so, rather than in person at a driver license office.
Floridians can use GoRenew.com to driver license transactions, motor vehicle registration and more.
For more information on services impacted in your county by COVID-19, please visit FLHSMV’s office closures page.
As directed by President Donald Trump, the Department of Homeland Security has extended the REAL ID enforcement deadline to October 1, 2021.
While Florida continues to be a nationwide leader in REAL ID compliance, this extension will allow us to continue to protect the health of our employees and the security of Floridians.
