Parents Can Now Check their Child's Driving Record

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has expanded its internet services to allow parental access to a minor's driving history.

The Jeffrey Klapatch Act went into effect Jan. 1, 2007 - the legacy of a Lakeland teenager who died tragically in 2005.  The new law provides a system that allows either parent of a minor, a guardian, or other responsible adult who signed a minor's application for a driver's license, to have internet access to inspect the minor's driver history record.

Click here  if you are a parent or guardian and would like to access the driving history of your minor child.  You will need to enter the driver license number, the last four digits of the minor's Social Security number and the date of birth.

 


 

 

Emergency Contact Information with FL Driver License and ID

 

If you were in a car crash, would police officers know how to quickly contact your loved ones?  The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles’ Emergency Contact Information program is a tool that law enforcement can use to do just that. 

 

The system allows licensed drivers and identification card holders to submit two contacts to notify in the event of an emergency, such as a vehicle crash. The information can then be accessed only by law enforcement officers to find designated contacts in the case of an emergency. 

 

More than 3.7 million Floridians have registered their contacts. Registration is quick and convenient. It can be completed in a state or tax collector operated driver license office or from the convenience of home or at work through the Internet. There is no cost to register.

ID Card For Children

As of October 1, 2006, Florida Statute 322.051 was amended to allow the issuance of a Florida State ID card to anyone five years of age and older.  The child must come into the office to be photographed.  Florida law requires proof of date of birth, proof of residential address, and proof of social security number (if issued) from all customers before an identification card can be issued. Please refer to our Real ID documents page for a listing of required documents.

Customers under 18 years old - A statement from a parent, step-parent or legal guardian of the minor is required. Parent, guardian or step-parent must reside at the same residence as minor. Parent, guardian or step-parent that accompanies the minor, will give a verbal statement that minor resides at same address and present two proofs of residence. Parent, guardian or step-parent that cannot accompany minor must complete a statement through a Certification of Address form with two proofs of residence.
