Out-of-Country Driver License
If you are a visitor holding a valid out-of-country license you are not required to obtain a Florida driver license unless you are becoming a permanent Florida resident.
Those who present an out-of-country license for first-time Florida license issuance are exempt from completing the Traffic Law Substance Abuse Education (4-hour drug and alcohol) course; however, not all written and driving skill exams are exempted. For clarification on which exams are necessary, please contact us online or call our office at 239.533.6000.
Standard document requirements must be met for all applicants, even if you hold an out-of-country license.
