**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.)**
The fees from Florida's saltwater fishing license sales are used to enhance the State's saltwater fisheries through improvement and restoration of fish habitats, research of marine life, increased law enforcement coverage and public education about our resources.
