University of Florida students and employees as well as anyone else near the Gainesville campus can get their driver's license updated and register their emergency contact information on campus until Friday afternoon.

The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has parked one of its a mini mobile units at the Bookstore Welcome Center on Museum Road. The Florida Licensing on Wheels unit will be open from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. through Friday.

The unit was developed to bring services directly to places where customers are likely to congregate such as the UF campus. Services available include driver's license renewals, name or address changes on a driver's license, vehicle registration, specialty license plate sales and issuance of identification cards for non-drivers. (The mobile unit does not administer driving tests or fingerprint commercial drivers.)

Anyone who wants to get a drivers license or ID card at the unit will need to bring along an original or certified copy of their birth certificate as well as proof of their Social Security number. The unit accepts cash, checks and American Express, Discover and MasterCard.
