Motorist Modernization


The Motorist Modernization initiative is a multi-year phased plan for re-engineering the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles’ driver license and motor vehicle systems to create efficiencies in the department’s work processes, enhance safety features for law enforcement agencies and streamline interactivity for customers now and into the future. When complete, the initiative will modernize driver license and vehicle registration systems to serve Florida’s growing population, without growing government. Customers may experience shorter wait times at local driver license and motor vehicle service centers and will gain access to additional online options.

Motorist Modernization includes a robust collaboration with law enforcement agencies, tax collectors, dealerships, insurance companies, emergency services and state agencies, among additional various stakeholders. Stakeholder input continues to be a valuable part of this process and will help shape the new technology and ensure increased efficiency.

The new systems are encompassed in the new Online Registration and Identity Operating Network (ORION).


Advisory Boards

The Motorist Modernization Advisory Boards serve in a governance capacity to the Motorist Modernization Program. The boards provide input and strategic guidance for the Motorist Modernization team and the Executive Steering Committee to assist in decision making. The meetings consist of multiple representatives from various departments and agencies in Florida. Members advise, assist, support and advocate for the program.
