Not a Manatee County resident?  Effective 7/24/17, Out-of-County residents can only be served at our Driver License Office, located at 904 301 Blvd W, Bradenton.  An appointment is required.  Visit to schedule an appointment.  Out-of-County residents must select the “Non-Manatee County Resident DL/ID Card Transaction” Service in order to be served.  Testing services (e.g. road testing, written exams) are provided for Manatee County residents only.

Florida Law requires that you have your vision checked at every renewal.  However, your eye doctor may require that you have your vision checked more frequently.  If that is the case, your eye doctor must submit a copy of your completed Report of Eye Exam to the Division of Motorist Services in Tallahassee.  They can do this electronically or by mail to Attn: Vision Section, 2900 Apalachee Parkway, RM B260 MS87, Tallahassee, FL 32399.

If you choose to turn in the form on behalf of your eye doctor, you must bring it to our Driver License Office (DLO) located at 904 301 Blvd West, Bradenton for processing.  Schedule an appointment online.  To expedite your visit, be sure to bring with you a properly completed Driver License Application.

Note: The Report of Eye Exam is only valid for one year from the date of the exam listed on the form.
