February is here and adds an extra day to the calendar during this leap year. Even with the extra day, this is a short month and the REAL ID deadline is approaching quickly.
As of Jan. 14, 2020, FLHSMV reports 104,311 Palm Beach County residents do not have a REAL ID-compliant driver license. Another 1,662 residents do not have a REAL ID-compliant state ID card. We suggest you follow these tips to help plan ahead and prepare:
- Make an appointment for driver license service. Palm Beach County residents can schedule an appointment up to 90 days in advace. Don't wait! Appointments book quickly.
- Print a handy checklist of required documents based on status. You will find comprehensive information and a printable checklist in PDF format for each status.
Not sure if you have a REAL ID? Check your Florida driver license or state ID card for a gold star in the upper right corner.
Don’t forget our offices will be closed Monday, Feb. 17, for Presidents’ Day.
