New Changes to Getting and Updating Driver's Licenses
Renewing or updating information on driver's licenses in Florida will get tougher after Dec. 31.
After that, the state will require additional proof of identity
and place of residence. It's part of the federal "Real ID" Act,
which aims to reduce fraud and combat terrorism.
Starting Jan. 1, new license applicants and in-person renewals
need two proofs of residence, proof of Social Security number and a
primary form of identification. An existing license or
identification card does not qualify.
The new ID requirements coincide with big increases in the cost
of a license for Florida residents. In September, the price of a
new license rose from $27 to $48, renewals rose from $20 to $48 and
replacements increased from $10 to $25.
