How do I update my Florida driver license if I currently have an expired license? Florida

That depends on a couple of factors, including how long your drivers license has been expired.

FL Expired License Renewals (Less Than 12 Months)

If your license expired within the past 12 months, you can process your renewal in the normal manner. However, you will have to pay a $15 late fee.

FL Expired License Renewals (More Than 12 Months)

Those in this situation must renew their driver license in person at a local drivers license renewal office. Bring your expired license, birth certificate or passport, and a cash or check to pay the renewal fee plus a $15 late fee. Some situations may require more documentation, so it's best to call the office before leaving home to make sure you have all the necessary identification.

New FL Residents With an Expired License from Another State

If this applies to you, bring your expired license, proof of date of birth, proof of residential address, and proof of Social Security number (if you were assigned a number) to the local drivers license renewal office. Depending on your situation, you may be asked to pass a written and a road test before being issued your Florida license.

Keep in mind that anyone caught driving in Florida with an expired license can receive a traffic ticket for driving with an expired license - even if it's a single day past the expiration date.
