It has been brought to our attention there is a website that Florida Citizens are accessing through Google to renew their driver license. If you Google Florida Driver License Renewal, the top two websites are not State of Florida Websites. These two websites charge a $14.00 fee. If you go onto the website, it does warn the customer they are not on a state website, but many people do not read this warning and will continue with the process.Please be aware, the correct website to renew a Florida Driver License is
