Community Resources & Local Attractions

While you are living in Orlando, Florida, we want to make sure that you have easy access to the resources you need for everyday life, as well as information on things to do and local attractions. The community resources page has information on transportation, insurance, medical care, libraries and other public services, as well as links to event calendars, shopping malls and outlets, theme parks, festivals, performing arts, museums, and galleries. 


Driver's License

The best place to find out detailed information on where and how to get a driver’s license is directly from the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) web page.  Check the Driver’s License Office Directory for addresses, telephone numbers, days and operating hours of nearby offices. The city of Orlando is in Orange County. You will need the following in order to apply for a license:

  • Current I-20
  • Valid passport
  • I-94 Departure Record

Other services provided by the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) include: issuance of Florida ID card, license renewals, license plate renewals, and finding a Florida DMV-approved traffic school.

NOTE: Florida law defines a bicycle as a vehicle so bicyclists are subject to many of the same responsibilities as operators of motor vehicles and subject to the same citations and fines for violating traffic law.
