Appointments will be Required for non-Palm Beach County Residents Seeking Driver License Services
West Palm Beach, Fla. – Tax Collector Anne M. Gannon today announced she will require residents from outside Palm Beach County to make an appointment for driver license services at her agency beginning July 1, 2018. The new policy is in direct response to the closure of the Deerfield Beach DMV office on June 29 and long wait times at Palm Beach County Tax Collector offices. Approximately 100,000 non-Palm Beach County residents seek driver license services at Gannon’s offices each year. Out-of-county residents directly affect the agency’s ability to provide exceptional customer service to Palm Beach County residents.
“My first priority is to the Palm Beach County taxpayers,” said Tax Collector Gannon. “I want to make sure our residents receive the attention and level of service they paid for and deserve.”
Beginning July 1, 2018, anyone living outside Palm Beach County must schedule an appointment to receive driver license services by visiting the Palm Beach County Tax Collector office where they intend to seek service. A limited number of appointments will be available. Tax Collector Gannon urges these taxpayers to plan ahead and not wait until the last minute. Driver license renewal notices are mailed 90 days prior to the expiration of the license.
“When I was first elected in 2006, Palm Beach County was home to 700,000 people. That number has doubled to 1.4 million Palm Beach County residents today,” said Gannon. “We are evaluating a number of ways we can continue to provide exceptional service to Palm Beach County residents. Requiring appointments for non-county residents is a solution we can implement almost immediately.”
