If your Florida driver's license or identification card has been lost, stolen, or mutilated, you can apply for a replacement or duplicate license at your local Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FHSMV) driver license office or online.

Instructions for replacing a lost, stolen or mutilated Florida driver's license or identification card:

You can apply for a duplicate driver's license online at this website if you are a US citizen.

To apply in person at a driver license office, follow the instructions below:

  1. Locate the Florida FHSMV driver license office nearest you. Be sure to note the days and hours of operation.
  2. Bring proof of legal presence. The state of Florida requires that you present one piece of primary ID and one piece of secondary ID.
  3. Bring the correct fee. Normally, there is a $25 fee for replacing a lost, stolen, or mutilated license. If applying online using a credit card, there may be a nominal additional service charge. Please contact your local FHSMV driver license office to confirm the fee before applying in person, since fees may vary.
    If your license has been stolen and you have filed a police report, the fee for obtaining a duplicate will be waived. Bring a copy of the police report when applying for a duplicate license.

Instructions for Florida residents who are temporarily out of state:

Florida residents who are temporarily out of state whose license has been stolen, damaged or lost may obtain a 90-day permit free of cost. This can be done in three ways:

  1. By calling (850) 617 2000.
  2. By emailing the Division of Driver Licenses through an online form.
  3. By writing to the FHSMV with details about your name, date of birth, social security number, driver license number and out of state mailing address. The mailing address is:
    Bureau of Records 
    2900 Apalachee Parkway, MS 92
    Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0575    

After returning to Florida, a replacement license can be obtained following the instructions mentioned earlier.

I am a Marco Island, Florida

I am a Marco Island, Florida resident now at my summer home in Pennsylvania. I left my Florida driver's license in Marco Island and I need a temporary one until I get back. Not being able to legally drive isn't my only problem. My banking account has been compromised at a loss of $80,000 and Pennsylvania won't recognize any photo ID besides one appearing upon my driver's license so I'm unable to even file an affidavit of fraud in an attempt to further conduct legal proceedings.

Please help! Time is of the essence!
