Florida DMV faces computer system issues for driver’s license-related services


The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) driver licensing system continues to experience an extended period of intermittent performance disruptions statewide. Tax collectors statewide were alerted to these issues on October 29, 2021.

The Lee County Tax Collector’s Office is working diligently to serve clients despite system issues; however, customers seeking license-related services may experience delays or extended wait times.

Tax Collector Noelle Branning says, “Licensing is an essential service that we provide to the community. We understand the negative impact that FLHSMV system failures have on our customers and hope that a solution will be identified soon. “

The Lee County Tax Collector’s Office is monitoring the situation with FLHSMV and looks forward to resuming normal operations when these issues are resolved. In the meantime, customers can follow FLHSMV on Twitter (@FLHSMV) for system updates.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said in a statement Wednesday:

“Today, FLHSMV deployed a fix for the most recent network issue affecting office-wide driver licensing. The Tax Collector’s and FLHSMV’s offices are starting to resume service, but some locations may take longer than others.

We have been in constant contact with our tax collection partners on this matter, and have updated our Twitter feed as more information becomes available, and will continue to do so.

In addition, online driving license services are available at MyDMV portal, and customers can check the status of their driver’s license here. “
