Florida motorists impacted by Irma can seek waivers for certain driver license and motor vehicle service fees.

If you’ve been falling behind because of Hurricane Irma’s impact and have a Florida license tag that’s past due, you may be eligible for a break.

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

The following driver license and motor vehicle feeds are being 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.
  • 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.

“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,” said  DHSMV Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes.
Those that qualify will have to visit a service center to receive the fee waiver.
