The Okaloosa County Tax Collector’s Office offers several methods to make paying drivers license transactions easier and more convenient.  Customers can pay in person using a debit/credit card issued by Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. A bank card fee is applicable for debit/credit card payments per FL Statute 215.322.  Payment by check or cash is also accepted.
