ATTENTION VETERANS OR ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEMBERS: Active duty military members, honorably discharged veterans, and veterans with a permanent 100% service-connected disability rating are exempt from certain driver's license fees. In order to have those fees waived, you must renew your license in-person and provide the appropriate documentation. View waiver eligibility requirements to see if you qualify. If you are an honorably discharged veteran or disabled veteran who has already submitted the appropriate documentation in-person, your fees will automatically be waived when you renew online.

As of May 7, 2025, you will need a REAL ID gold star on your driver's license/ID or another TSA-approved identity document like a passport to fly within the U.S. or access certain federal facilities.

  • To get your REAL ID gold star, you will need to visit us in person and bring additional documents with you.
  • If you choose not to get a REAL ID, you will receive a driver's license or identification card that reads, "NOT FOR REAL ID ACT PURPOSES".
