At the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV),
we come into contact with nearly every Floridian as well as
many visitors to our state.
People get a driver license to operate their
vehicles or for photo identification purposes. They register
and title their automobiles, mobile homes, and boats.
They may receive assistance from the Florida
Highway Patrol if they are involved in a crash or their
vehicle breaks down along Florida's highways. Often the
Patrol will remind drivers to slow down and buckle up.
There is more to DHSMV than meets the eye. Our mission is to
provide highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. Our department members around the state are
dedicated to accomplishing this mission. You may be surprised
by some of the duties we perform and the numerous on-line
services now available.

more information on all that DHSMV can do for you.
