If your license was issued prior to July 1995, you must visit an MVD office to obtain the duplicate so that your photo may be updated.

Renew Your License

You cannot renew your license online. You may renew your driver license anytime before the expiration date of your current license. You must complete a Driver License / Identification Card Application, visit an MVD office, have a new photo taken and pass a vision screening. There is no formal notification process to renew your license.

You will submit your current driver license as your primary identification document. If we cannot retrieve your photo, you will be asked for a secondary form of identification. See Identification Requirements for a list of acceptable proof of identification. After completing the renewal process you will receive a temporary license valid for 30 days. Your permanent license will be mailed to the address you provide. Please make sure the address is correct.
