Florida Gives Drivers a Break on Fees

waiverHurricane Irma has come and gone, but numerous South Floridians are still dealing with the storm’s effects. Because of the impact of the hurricane, the state is giving drivers some room to breathe by waiving certain fees. These waived fees include:

  • Delinquent fees resulting from a late driver’s license or vehicle registration renewal due to the storm or closure of offices.
  • Fees to replace an ID card or license that may have been lost due to the severe weather.
  • Fees for a duplicate vehicle registration or title certificate that may have been lost due to the severe weather.
  • The $10 print-on-demand fee typically charged for an expedited title for a total loss vehicle related to storm damage. This waiver will remain permanent for the time being. Any liens must also be satisfied.

In order to qualify for these waivers, drivers must visit one of the service centers. If you need to find one near you, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website has a full list of which ones are currently open or closed.
