Driver's license renewals may be completed online if your last renewal was completed in person and you are under 80 years old. If 80 or older, you must take a vision test prior to renewing.

The below transactions require a visit to one of our Service Centers. You must make an appointment by calling 941.861.8300, option 2, and you will need to bring your required documents.

  • If you are applying for your first driver's license or identification card
  • If your current card is expired and you have already used the one-time online renewal option
  • If you have changed your name since your last renewal (eg: marriage or divorce)
