Losing your license is a big deal. After all, it is what legally grants you the privilege to drive. So what can you do if it's missing?

Stolen License Replacement

If you suspect that your license has been taken, the first thing you should do is file a police report. Although this is not mandatory, it helps the police prevent against identity theft. In addition to this, when you report a stolen license, you will be eligible for a free replacement.

Before you apply for a replacement, you will need to have:

  • A copy of the police report
  • A completed Identity Theft/Driver's License Fraud Report (click here) available through the FLHSMV.

With these documents, you will be able to waive your replacement fee.

Lost License Replacement

If you're positive that your license is missing, and has not been stolen, you can choose to replace your license online or in-person.

If you decide to replace your license in person, you will need to provide proof of identification, proof of social security and two proofs of residency.

If you wish to use the online tool, you will need to provide:

  • Your birth date
  • Your full name
  • Your address
  • Your social security number

Remember: If you do not fill out a police report for a stolen license, you will have to pay the replacement fee of $25.00. If you have a copy of the police report, you will need to present it in person to waive the fee.
