This was a one time professional service. Cash was tendered and a copy of driver license was required to be maintained in their file.
Thank you for your follow-up
. It does appear to be a situation where the seller or provider of services was seeking to obtain your driver's license information. However under Florida law that is not against the state code or statutes. Provided the party responsibly maintains such information and does not permit it to fall into improper hands, ensures that the information is not used against you such as via identity theft or fraud, the requests are valid and legal. You do not have to comply, but in return the provider does not have to provide the services that you are seeking. This is not a violation in this case so providing him with information (or not) is purely your choice.
Hope that clarifies.
