Driver Licensing > Online Driver License Renewal

Please note: If you wish to obtain a REAL ID compliant license, you will need to renew your driver license in person at any DMV office, and bring with you the required documents. Please be advised that if you renew online, the license mailed to you will indicate "Not For Federal Identification."

If you choose to renew online, your current license photo will be printed on your new license. There is no option to have a new photo taken when you renew online. You must have a renewal notice containing a "Renewal Identification Number (RIN)". If you cannot find your notice or if your renewal notice does not list a RIN, you are not eligible to renew online and you must renew in person at a DMV office. If you attempt to renew online and you get "locked out" by the system you will have to renew in person at a DMV office.

If you are interested in receiving a REAL ID driver license at this renewal, please be advised that you are required to renew in person at a DMV office. Please visit our REAL ID webpage for more information.
