Driver’s License- What you need to know

Hitting the Road in Florida: Know Your Driver’s License and Record

Cruising along the Sunshine State’s scenic highways is a dream, but staying informed about your driver’s license and record ensures a smooth journey. Let’s navigate your questions:

Is my license valid?

No sweat! Check its status instantly on the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) website: Just pop in your license number and you’re good to go.

Speaking of going, how can I peek at my driving record… for free?

While a detailed history might have a fee, the FLHSMV’s “Driver License Check” offers basic info like suspensions and status, all for free!

Is everyone’s license info like an open book?

In Florida, driver’s license info is mostly public record, accessible through official requests. But hey, some sensitive details might be off-limits. Same goes for vehicle registration info.

My license got suspended. Why and how do I fix it?

The FLHSMV check or a quick call can explain the reason. Common culprits include unpaid fines, point overload, or driving without insurance. To get back on track, follow their instructions based on the cause.

Is my car registration stuck in park?

Check its status online at using your vehicle identification number (VIN). Expired registration or unpaid fees could be the culprit.

Someone might be digging up dirt on me. Will my driving record show up?

Background checks for jobs, housing, etc., often involve public record searches, potentially including your driving record. So, keeping it clean is always a good idea.

How long does this “driving record shadow” follow me?

In Florida, it stays on file for ten years after your last activity, like renewing your license or getting a ticket. Points typically linger for three to five years, depending on the violation.

I messed up. Can I erase my driving record?

Not quite magic, but options exist! Completing traffic school, attending court-ordered programs, or simply waiting for points to expire can help.
