The List of Required Information For Registration Completion Appointments

  2. A Lifetime Driving History, which cannot be more than 30 days old when you come to complete registration. This can be obtained from any Florida Clerk of Court office or our DUI office for $15.00 and must be obtained even if you have never had a Florida driver’s license. If you have held a license in any other state(s) you must obtain a certified driving history from them.
  3. A copy of your Court Order if you have completed the court process.
  4. Your current Picture ID.
  5. Your printed receipt from your online pre-registration.
  6. We cannot make copies of any of the above information for you.

Ten Day Eligibility Review For Restricted Driver License/Waiver of Administrative Suspension

Amended Florida Statutes effective July 01, 2013
322.2615(1)(b)(3) – Suspension of license; right to review. –
In addition to a driver requesting a formal or informal review of the administrative suspension by the department (DHSMV) within 10 days of issuance of the notice of suspension, driver may request a review of eligibility for a restricted driving privilege.

322.271(7)(c) – Authority to modify revocation, cancellation, or suspension order.–
Acceptance of the reinstated restricted driving privilege (business purposes only) is deemed a waiver of the right to formal and informal review under F. S. 322.2615

As of July 01, 2013, a person may request a review of eligibility (for a first offense DUI, only) to have the ‘hard time’ portion of their suspension set aside. That means they won’t have to go without a driver’s license for the traditional 30 or 90 days (based on a BAC reading or a Refusal).

  • This process must be completed within 10 days of the person’s DUI arrest.
  • The person must request the review in person at the Bureau of Administrative Reviews (BAR) in Tampa*
  • The person must show the BAR proof of enrollment in a local DUI program or a copy of their online receipt.
