New, More Secure Driver License and ID Card
Starting in August, 2017, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) began issuing a new, more secure Florida driver license and ID card. The new credential uses the latest technology to safeguard your personal information and provide Floridians with the most secure over-the-counter credential on the market today.
The new credential will be available in Palm Beach County beginning in October when the state installs new driver license printers in each of our service centers. What does this mean for you?
If your current driver license/ID card is REAL ID compliant (contains a yellow star in the upper right corner), you do not need to replace it until it expires. You can renew online at GoRenew.com after December 2017. You will receive the new, more secure credential.
If your current driver license or ID card is not REAL ID compliant (no star in the upper right corner), you must renew in person to receive the new, more secure credential. As part of the REAL ID Act, there are documentation requirements to bring your driver license/ID card into compliance. For more information about REAL ID compliance including Florida’s new driver license and ID card, please visit: www.flhsmv.gov.
REAL ID-compliant driver licenses have a star in the upper right corner. Deadlines are coming up for the federally mandated identification requirements. Find out what you need to know to become REAL ID'd.
