FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, APRIL 13, 2007

Tallahassee - The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) is pleased to announce that its Florida Licensing On Wheels (FLOW) mobile will participate at the 2007 Eglin Air Show (Heritage to Horizons…Celebrating 60 Years of Airpower). This is a great opportunity to participate in two public safety initiatives recently implemented by the department and to meet newly appointed DHSMV Executive Director, Electra Bustle.

The event marks the continued partnership between the department and Eglin Air Force Base to bring driver services directly to the citizens of Okaloosa and its surrounding counties. Every Friday since 2006, a DHSMV FLOW mobile unit has visited Eglin to serve military personnel at their doorstep, offering a variety of services including driver license duplicates, renewals, reinstatements and ID cards. Vehicle registration and tag renewals will also be offered.

The air show gives DHSMV the opportunity to reach even more customers and encourage parents to obtain a State of Florida identification card for their children between the ages of 5 and 18. Having a Florida ID for a child allows law enforcement immediate access to information on the child, including their picture which is critical during an emergency or an investigation.

FLOW staff will also be available to provide driver license and ID card holders the opportunity to enter emergency contact information into a secure database only accessible to law enforcement. This is another critical tool used by law enforcement officials in cases like a serious traffic crash where an emergency contact, especially family members, needs to be notified.

The cost of an original ID card is $3.00 – duplicates are $10.00. Wal-mart Stores, Inc. has graciously agreed to pay for the children’s identification cards for the first 300 children. Parents will need to bring an original or certified copy of the child’s birth certificate and a second form of identification, such as a social security card. Other driver license and motor vehicle services will also be available.

Please come visit the DHSMV FLOW mobile at the following location:
