FL renewal couldn't be easier Login/Join

I had to renew cause my license expired today. Made my appointment at my tax collectors office yesterday in case I ran into problems and had to show up today. I've never renewed by anything other than mail and my tax collector has only been doing this for about 5 months so I figured they might be working kinks out still.

I walked in at my appt time, guy verified my info was still the same, handed him a check, and he printed me out my new license. It took a total of 5 minuets. I think it's safe to say I'll always go back there for renewals now.

Good to know, thanks. Just renewed mine last year but did via mail.

In SC, we can renew online, as long as all personal info (name, address, phone no. etc.) is the same.

FL can be done online as well. My point is I didn't have to fill anything out or wait on it being mailed to me.

I keep telling my students that foe firs time applications as well as renewals, it just makes it much easier.


“Denial kills you twice. It kills you once, at your moment of truth when you are not physically prepared: You didn’t bring your gun; you didn’t train. Your only defense was wishful thinking. Hope is not a strategy. Denial kills you a second time because even if you do physically survive, you are psychologically shattered by fear, helplessness, horror and shame at your moment of truth.”

It's a little more difficult to renew a Florida Permit if you are a non-resident of Florida.
I must fill out a new application, send in a new photo, send in a new fingerprint card, as well as pay fees of approximately $87.00.

I believe it would be. At my tax collectors office they do it all in one room even for new licenses. They have a computer people do the application at, they have a camera set up, and they have a electronic fingerprint scanner.

The only difference would be an extra $12 that the Dept of ag allows the tax collector to charge as a convenience fee. So rather than paying the $45 (resident) for renewal I had to pay $57 total, but I didn't have to fill anything out, figure out the passport photo, wait on the mail, or wait on it being processed.

I'm wondering if you non residents have tried renewing other than by mail? The options are mail, online, local tax collecter in FL, or regional office in FL.

We know it can be done by mail. The Dept of ag says non residents can do it at one of our participating local tax collectors, but the license will be mailed to you. The Dept of ag isn't clear about regional offices or online apps for non residents.

I mean they mail out the application to everyone prior to expiration, but if it were me I'd rather do it online if I lived out of state. No chance of it getting lost or delayed if you can do it online.

Anyone know?
