The status of a suspended driver’s license may be checked by using DMV.org, which charges a fee, or by checking with the Department of Motor Vehicles or Secretary of State for the state that issued your driver’s license. Florida and Idaho, among other states, both offer free online driver’s license verification as of November 2015.
The Suspended License Web page of DMV.org has links for every state to check the status of a suspended driver’s license. Click on the state that issued the driver’s license you would like to check; you are then advised of the cost of the service. Next, you are prompted to enter your full name, date of birth, license number and your address. If you have lived at your current address for less than two years, you are prompted to enter your previous address also. DMV.org is a private company and has no official affiliation with any state department of motor vehicles.
Navigate to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to check the status of a Florida driver’s license. Enter your driver’s license number where indicated on the website, and after entering the verification, click Enter. The free results tell you whether your Florida driver’s license is suspended or valid.
To check on a driver’s license issued by the Idaho Transportation Department, navigate to the Idaho free driver’s license check Web page. Enter your name as it appears on your driver’s license, together with your date of birth and your Idaho driver’s license number or your Social Security number. After clicking Continue, you receive a free report detailing the status of your Idaho driver’s license.
