Driver License & State ID - Renew Online

Upon processing of your renewed license or ID, which can take 3-5 business days, you will receive an emailed receipt and copy of your renewed license to print at home. This is the same type of temporary that you would receive in our offices. Your new license will be mailed and should arrive in 2-4 weeks. A refund will not be issued if you choose to obtain a new card, including an upgrade to a REAL ID card, in person after submitting an online application.
This online service is for renewal of a standard (non-REAL ID) card or a REAL ID card, depending on the type you currently hold.
Starting January 2, 2019, cards are valid up to eight years.
An upgrade to a REAL ID requires an in-person application
and verification of identity documents.
For REAL ID info please see the REAL ID Checklist and REAL ID FAQ.
