Before your license expires, the Florida Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) will mail you a renewal notice telling you
that it's time to renew. The DHSMV allows you to renew your valid FL
driver's license up to 18 months before the expiration date.
- Your FL driver's license will be valid for 8 years at a time.
- If you are 80 years old or older, your FL driver's license will be valid for 6 years and you will be required to pass a vision test to renew it.
