Need to go to the DMV in Miami-Dade or Broward? Don’t plan on just dropping in

·1 min read

Starting this week, customers should no longer show up without an appointment at driver’s license offices from Homestead to Miami to Fort Lauderdale to Deerfield Beach.

Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles offices in Miami-Dade, Broward and the Volusia County office in South Daytona now require people to schedule appointments online. Really, the FHSMV wants customers to handle their business online as much as possible, cutting down on long waits and the aggravation that follows.

“Most driver license and motor vehicle services can be completed online, and the department has expanded the services available online in the last year to better meet customers’ needs,” an agency spokesman said in an email to the Miami Herald.

Among those services at are renewing or replacing a driver’s license; ID card; registration for cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, motor homes; getting a hard copy title.

But if you need to head for the DMV, check online for the location most convenient for you.

“Appointment slots are opened daily,” according to the email. “If no appointments are available, we encourage customers to check back the next day for additional slots for the upcoming week or potential cancellations.”

Obviously, if you can’t make an appointment, the agency would like you to cancel so that slot opens for someone else.
