Every person who wishes to obtain a driver license or identification card in Florida is required to show specific documentation to prove citizenship/immigration status and identity.
Florida’s requirements follow federal regulations established by the Department of Homeland Security’s Real ID Act which was designed to improve security and help reduce identity fraud.
The name that appears on the primary document is the name we must use for the driver license or identification card. To change your name on the driver license or identification card, you must first change it on your permanent resident card.
Note: If you have impaired vision and legally require the use of glasses or other corrective lenses while driving, you must bring your corrective lenses to your driver license appointment.
