If you have an upcoming birthday — which means having to renew your driver license soon — the state of Florida has given you a birthday present — granted, it is due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In response to COVID-19, Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes issued an Emergency Order extending all Florida driver licenses, commercial driver licenses and identification cards that will expire between now and April 15 will be granted a 30-day extension beyond their current expiration date.
The Executive Order also authorizes waiving 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.
