The State Driver's License Office on Northwest 34th Street closed its doors on Friday, March 8th. Residents can go to two locations -- The Alachua County Tax Collector's Office across from the old DMV and the office in Downtown Gainesville -- to renew their driver's license. A state law was passed in 2011 requiring Tax Collector's Offices to provide driver's license services by July 2015. Both offices in Gainesville start providing the new service on Monday, March 11th.
"Often, customers would wait an excess of two hours to get through the long lines at the State Office. We are extremely hopeful with the Tax Collector's Office providing services, we can cut those wait times drastically," John Power (Chief Deputy Tax Collector) said.
The Tax Collector's Office in Butler Plaza starts offering services in May.
