New rules for license renewal, replacement
The Hernando County Tax Collector's Office reminds residents that a new state law effective Jan. 1 has new documentation requirements for residents to get a driver's license or identification card.
Those wishing to obtain a new license, legally change their name before their renewal date or immediately replace a lost or stolen license or ID card are required to visit a driver's license office and show:
• Proof of identification (e.g. birth certificate or passport)
• Proof of Social Security number
• Proof of residential address (must be two items).
Those simply renewing a license/ID card may do so by Internet or mail, one time between office renewals.
The renewal following such convenience options must be in a state driver's license office or participating tax collector's office.
Residents are encouraged to visit GatherGoGet.com to find out how and when to gather personal documents, go to a driver's license office and get a new card.
This online hub offers contact information for required documents, creates personalized checklists and offers a browsing list of local driver's license offices.
The Florida law was enacted to ensure the state's compliance with the provisions of the Federal Real ID Act.
There are two service locations in Hernando County where residents can obtain a driver's license or ID card:
• Florida Department of Motor Vehicles (next to Florida Highway Patrol), 11319 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Brooksville. Call (352) 754-6761.
