These sessions are only for residents living on the impacted streets. Make sure you have the official city letter and all the necessary documents required by Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to change your drivers license before coming to one of these special sessions. As part of federal requirements for the issuing of driver's licenses and identification cards, all licenses must now be REAL-ID compliant. Licenses that have a star in the upper corner are compliant. For customers who don't have a current license with star, you must bring original documents that validate your identity, social security card and residential address. For a checklist of the valid document options that are acceptable, please go to www.GatherGoGet.com. Additionally, all customers will need to show their current, valid drivers license listing one of the following street names: Forrest Drive, Forrest Street, Lee Street, or Hood Street.
