TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – More than 200 service centers are expected to begin issuing Florida’s new Driver’s License and Identification cards according to a press release issued by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
The release stated the Department will expand its release of the new over-the-counter credential card starting this month and will continue to add more than 200 remaining service centers through December throughout Florida.
In the statement, The Department’s Executive Director, Terry L. Rhodes stated, “We understand our customers’ credential is the most valuable item in their wallet.
