Customers Urged to Use Official Resources for Driver License and Motor Vehicle Services

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) is urging customers to use its safe, secure and convenient resources when renewing or replacing a Florida driver license, ID card or registration online.

“DHSMV is proud to be able to offer a safe and convenient way for customers to do business with the department,” said DHSMV Executive Director, Terry L. Rhodes. “Last year, customers completed 3.76 million transactions through GoRenew.com and I am dedicated to continuing to provide excellent customer service and expanding online transactions for those we serve.”

There are other sites which offer customers the option of renewing online, but customers should be aware of additional, and sometimes excessive, convenience fees. When using GoRenew.com, the department charges a $2.00 convenience fee applied to the total transaction. For an entire list of driver license and motor vehicle fees, click here.
