REAL Identification Card Compliant
Starting October 1, 2020, all United States adults - including Floridians - will need to present a REAL ID-compliant license or another acceptable form of identification for domestic air travel.
Not sure if your ID is REAL ID compliant? If you have a gold star on your driver license or identification card, you’re good to go.
If your ID is not REAL ID compliant, you must visit a Tax Collector’s office in person to obtain a REAL ID. You cannot upgrade to a REAL ID online. If your driver license is valid and unexpired, it will remain valid for driving purposes until the expiration date. View a checklist of required documents (PDF) to obtain a REAL ID.
Changing Your Name
If you have legally changed your name by marriage or court order, you must submit a copy of your marriage certificate(s) or court order(s). You must show documentation of all name changes. Please remember to update your records with the Social Security Administration at least 24 hours before visiting our office for a name change on your driver license.
