How do I apply for a Florida duplicate license to replace a stolen drivers license or lost license? Florida

You have two basic ways to replace a stolen or lost drivers license; please see below for details.

FL Replacement Drivers License Online

You may apply for a duplicate license without leaving your home or office with this option. Just visit the Florida GoRenew processing site and follow the instructions. You can pay the driver license replacement fee with your VISA, Master Card, or American Express card. If you're not a U.S. citizen, you can't use this option.

FL Replacement Drivers License In-Person

The state suggests this is the fastest way to get your duplicate license. Just go to a nearby drivers license office with two acceptable documents proving your identity and Florida residence. If you're not a U.S. citizen, you'll need to provide proof of legal presence.


The typical lost license replacement costs $25; however, if your license was stolen and you bring in a copy of the police report, you won't have to pay the fee.


If you lose your drivers license while outside the state, you can apply for a duplicate license online, by sending an e-mail or letter, or by calling (850) 617-2000; call that number for more information on any of these options.
