Motor Vehicles

You may drive in Florida if you have a valid driver’s license from another state and are on active duty. If you, your spouse or child becomes employed here, you must obtain a Florida driver’s license within 30 days. Florida requires that all motorists carry a valid insurance card, which must be presented if involved in any accidents on base. 

Occupants of all motor vehicles both on base and in the state of Florida are required to wear safety belts. Florida statutes state that children younger than 5 years must use a federally approved child safety seat. Those who cannot wear seat belts due to a medical condition must have a certified doctor’s statement in their possession that indicates a condition exists that precludes wearing of seatbelts. Vintage vehicles must have seatbelts installed regardless of antique status to drive on NAS Jacksonville or NS Mayport. 

In order to drive onto the installations, vehicles must have a valid DoD sticker or a temporary pass, which is authorized by the Commanding Officer. Drivers must show their government identification, driver’s license and vehicle registration. 

Motorcycle operators are required to complete the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s (MSF) Basic Rider Course or Experienced Rider Suite Plus before a pass or station decal can be issued. All operators must show their course completion card or a copy of their page 13 to show they have completed one of the courses. State motorcycle courses may be substituted if the state card meets the same compliance requirements. DoD policy states that cell phones may not be used while driving on installations.
