FLORIDA (WTXL) - Florida officials say they will be waiving fees for the replacement of drivers licenses and vehicle registration until October 9.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) says they will be waiving certain driver license and motor vehicle service fees for individuals impacted by Hurricane Irma. 

The following fees will be waived through October 9, 2017:

  • Delinquent fee for a late renewal of a driver license or vehicle registration that resulted from severe weather or office closure during Hurricane Irma;
  • Fee to replace a driver license or ID card if severe weather caused the loss of a credential;
  • Fee for a duplicate title certificate or vehicle registration if severe weather caused the loss of a title or vehicle registration; and
  • The $10 expedited title print-on-demand fee for total loss vehicle title related to damage from Hurricane Irma (if liens have been satisfied). This waiver has no end date. 

“Many Floridians have felt the effect of Hurricane Irma and DHSMV understands the impacts to our customers,” said DHSMV Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes. “To aid in the recovery effort, DHSMV is committed to providing all possible assistance to Florida residents. We are proud to serve as a resource in this time of need.”
