New Florida Driver Licenses

Sep 18, 2017

The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has approved a new design for driver licenses that will be implemented across the state by the end of this year. 

We would like to remind you that individuals are not required to replace their current driver license or ID card until it has reached its expiration or a required change is needed, such as a name or address change. Both the old and new design will be recognized and accepted as a valid proof of identity.

The new license will be offered at select pilot locations beginning August 2017, however full implementation, including online transactions at, will be available the end of December.
