FROM: Anne M. Gannon, Constitutional Tax Collector
DATE: June 16, 2015
RE: Florida DMV Office To Close
The last Florida DMV office in Palm Beach County, located at 571 North Military Trail, West Palm Beach, closes on June 26, 2015. The closing is required because the Florida Legislature transferred issuing driver licenses to Constitutional Tax Collectors.
The DMV closing has already impacted service centers. Wait times for all services have increased particularly at our Lantana, Royal Palm Beach and Delray Beach/South County Service Centers.
The easiest way to avoid crowded offices is to use our online payment center (www.pbctax.com). Most payments, including motor vehicle registration renewals (the largest percentage of service center visits) can be done online. Online transactions include:
* Renew motor vehicle and boat registrations
* Pay property taxes (2015 Installment Plan and annual property tax payments)
* Renew Local Business Tax Receipts (July 1 - September 30)
* Renew or make address changes to your REAL ID Driver License or state ID Card
* Purchase hunting & fishing licenses
Reductions in wait times are expected when the construction of our new Central Palm Beach Service Center is complete. We expect to open in mid-November 2015 if construction stays on schedule.
If you plan to visit an office during the transition, it's a good idea to check wait times before leaving. We post service center wait times on our website. You may also text "waitpbc" to 41411. You will receive a message with driver license wait times at each of our service centers. We do not charge for this service, but your carrier's standard messaging rates may apply.
I appreciate your patience during this transition. For extra online support, email our Client Advocate at ClientAdvocate@taxcollector.com. For the latest construction and service news and updates check our webpage.
