Driver License Extension

At the direction of Governor Ron DeSantis, and in response to the current health emergency we are facing as we battle the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes has executed an Emergency Order. The Emergency Order extends all Florida driver licenses (including Florida Commercial Driver Licenses) and identification cards that will expire in the next 30 days. All Florida driver licenses and identification cards set to expire in the next 30 day will be granted a 30-day extension beyond their current expiration date.

The Executive Order authorizes the following:

  • Extends the effective period for all driver licenses and identification cards set to expire between March 16, 2020, and April 15, 2020, for 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.
