We recently added a FAQ to our website about the state of Florida’s requirements for elderly drivers to renew their drivers’ licenses every 6 years
A: Currently, the state of Florida requires drivers aged 80 and above to renew their drivers’ licenses every six years, along with a vision test. In other words, once a driver turns 80, he or she must pass an eye exam in order to renew an existing license. These drivers must then go through the process to renew their licenses. According to the tampabay.com website, approximately 2,100 seniors in the state of Florida give up their licenses each year due to failed vision tests or the refusal to have their eyes examed.
