**Effective December 1, 2017, an appointment is required to process any hunting and fishing license/permit transactions at our Driver License Office located at 904 - 301 Blvd W, Bradenton.  Visit taxcollector.com to schedule an appointment.  (Our other office locations cannot sell hunting and fishing licenses/permits.)**

Yes; if you are a Florida resident 65 years of age, you are entitled to fish or hunt without a license, provided you are not fishing for commercial purposes and you carry proof of age and residency with you (for example, your Florida driver license).  This privilege does not include a Federal Duck Stamp, which must be purchased at the Post Office or online at www.MyFWC.com, if desired.
