**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.)**

You may purchase a recreational vessel license for a fee of $2,001.50 per 12 month period. A recreational license is only required if the passengers on the not-for-hire boat want to saltwater fish without being individually licensed.  For additional information, visit www.MyFWC.com.

A recreational license can only be issued at a Tax Collector's Office.  Our branch offices do not sell any type of hunting/fishing licenses.  You must visit our Driver License Office located at 904 - 301 Blvd W, Bradenton, if you need this type of license.
