Driver Licenses & Identification Cards

Property tax dollars and fees paid by Polk County Residents subsidize the cost of providing driver license services in Polk County. Because of this, Polk County residents receive first consideration for the following:
  • Driver License Services (not including Road Tests) are available in Lakeland, Lake Wales, and North Ridge (Davenport) for Polk County Residents on a walk-in, first come first served basis.
  • Driver License Services (not including written examinations) are available in Bartow by appointment only.

Note: Non-Residents of Polk County are required to schedule a visit by obtaining Guest Service Ticket prior to seeking Driver License Services in Polk. Non Resident Guest Service Tickets are limited and only guarantee the Non Resident Guest a place in line with Polk County residents at the time of their visit. This ticket is not an actual Service Center appointment and simply allows a Non Resident to obtain a queue number for service. For more information click here.
