Florida Motorcycle Handbook: Application for Driver License Endorsed for Motorcycle Operation
3. Earning your License
Florida law requires proof of identification, social security number (if issued, Chapter 322, Florida Statutes, requires the Department see proof of social security number for the issuance of driver license and identification cards) and proof of residential address from all customers before a driver license or identification card can be issued. The name assigned to the social security number must match the name that will appear on the Florida driver license or identification card. If you have recently changed your name, update your records with the Social Security Administration before you apply for your license or identification card.
If the name you are going to use on your driver license or identification card is different than the name on your primary identification, you will be required to show additional identification. This additional identification may include marriage certificates, court orders or divorce decrees to link the names between the primary identification and the name that will be used on the driver license or identification card.
