How to Renew a Driver's License in Florida

A Florida Driver's License can be renewed online, by mail, by phone or in person at the local Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) office.

WHEN TO RENEW YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE

  1. Your Florida driver's license is valid for four years and will generally expire on your birthday.
  2. People who have a good driving record, with no conviction for three years and seven years without suspension or revocation, are eligible for ‘safe driver' license which is valid for six years.
  3. You may renew your license up to 18 months prior to expiration.

TO RENEW IN PERSON

If applying in person at the local DHSMV office, it is best to make an Online Appointment Service and Information System (OASIS) which can be done online. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. You must:
  1. Bring expired license.
  2. Bring proof of citizenship or proof of legal presence.
  3. Provide your Social security number
  4. Pay a renewal fee of $15.
  5. Drivers 80 years of age or older are required to take a vision test.

TO RENEW ONLINE

You can renew your Florida driver's license online if you are a US citizen. Non-US citizens who are immigrants can also apply online if they have applied in person for renewal at least once after March 2002. Non-immigrants cannot apply for license renewal online. Payment for online renewal can be charged to your credit card.

TO RENEW BY PHONE

Call 1-866-GoRenew (467-3639).    
Payment can be done with a Visa card, American Express Card or MasterCard. A processing fee of $2.90 is payable along with the license renewal fee of $15.

TO RENEW BY MAIL

Those eligible for license renewal by mail will be sent the renewal application about 45 days prior to the expiration date. Just follow instructions to complete the application and return it along with the $15 fee.

Hi,

I am a non-immigrant. I had a Minnesota drivers license which expired in july 2013. Now I moved to FL. Can I renew my license here? If so, Should I take both written and driving test.

Thanks

My driver license expires in 07-12-2013. How long am I allowed to drive after expiration date?

I renewed my drivers license via mail. I received my license. It does not have a gold star in the upper right hand corner. This is necessary to use for identification when flying. How come there wasn't a gold star and how do I obtain license with gold star?

It will cost you another $32 at the local office to get a gold star! Go figure!

This website needs to be updated. To renew in person has more requierments and the fee is $54( aprox.)
