License Re-Testing May Be Required in Florida

Due to recent reforms in Florida law, drivers can face a few potential obstacles when renewing their licenses. Florida passed a new law last month requiring drivers who have had their license suspended for an extended amount of time to retake a vision test as well as complete the written part of the driving exam before being able to renew.


Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2021 -- The below are some examples of situations where re-testing could be required:

Drivers who have passed the Class E (standard license type) awareness test but have not applied for issuance within one year of the exam date.

Drivers whose driver's license has been demoted to an ID card and whose driver's license has been suspended for one or two years.

Drivers who have not applied to update their driver's license within the one-year delayed extension period.

Drivers may wish to renew their licenses early to avoid having to retake the exam. Applicants who want to study for the exam can download the official Florida Driver's Handbook.
