Thousands of Motorists Paid to Update License, But There Was a Glitch

Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles

Recently, thousands of motorists paid $27 to update their driver’s licenses. Problem is the new licenses had the old address.

The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said there was a glitch in its 30-year-old computer system and apologized.

Published reports say almost 86-hundred people were affected between Sept. 27 and Oct. 1.

The state says it will mail corrected licenses for free and sent a notice to county tax collectors across the state about the situation.

State law requires people to update the address on their license within 10 days of moving or risk a $30 fine.

Those who moved from out of state have 30 days to apply for their initial Florida license.
