Florida Driver’s License Emergency Contact Information

Driver Privacy Protection ActYou never know when or if you will be involved in a horrific car accident or will need emergency care. When these situations occur, you might not be able to call your loved ones to tell them that you are being transported to the hospital or that you need their help. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles offers a free service which allows you to provide emergency contact information to law enforcement in the event of an emergency, if you have a current Florida Driver’s License or Florida Identification Card. Having this information accessible saves critical time. The emergency contact information is protected under the “Driver Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) and automatically blocks the release of driver license information, name, address, telephone number, medical or disability information and emergency contact information. Please consider logging onto and provide your emergency contact information.
