Driver License Extension

An Emergency Order was executed, at the direction of Governor Ron DeSantis in response to the current health emergency we are facing, by Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes. This Order extends the expiration of all Florida driver licenses (including Florida Commercial Driver Licenses) and identification cards set to expire between March 16, 2020 and May 31, 2020 as described below:

  • The effective period of driver licenses and identification cards with expiration dates on or after March 16, 2020, through April 15, 2020, is extended for sixty (60) days.
  • The effective period of driver licenses and identification cards with expiration dates on or after April 16, 2020, through April 30, 2020, is extended for thirty (30) days.
  • The delinquent renewal fees are waived during the extension period for these driver licenses and identification cards.

UPDATE: Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes executed a new Emergency Order on April 30, 2020.  The Emergency Order authorizes the following :

  • Extends the effective period of all driver licenses and identification cards with expiration dates on or after May 1, 2020, through May 31, 2020, for thirty (30) days.
  • Waives the delinquent renewal fees during the extension period for these driver licenses and identification cards.

The Department suggests Floridians traveling out of the state print the Executive Order and carry it with their driver license.

In alignment with the Emergency Order, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office deputies are avoiding issuing citations related to driver licenses that expire throughout this time frame.  Also, although not part of the Emergency Order, deputies will also avoid issuing citations or taking criminal traffic enforcement action related to vehicle registrations and license plates that expire within that period.

REAL ID Compliance Deadline Extended
Upon direction from President Donald Trump, the Department of Homeland Security has extended the REAL ID enforcement deadline to October 1, 2021.
Although Florida is a nationwide leader in REAL ID compliance, this extension allows us to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers.
