You may have an alternative to making an in-person appointment to renew your driver’s license or ID card for eight years. DMV offers most current eight-year credential holders who are required to renew in person the option to use online services and obtain a new two-year driver’s license or ID card. This will postpone the requirement for those customers to visit a DMV customer service center until it is time for their next renewal. Learn more.
