Texans Can Renew Driver License Online, Change Address

Texans can save time and gas by skipping the trip to the local driver license office, by taking their business online. You can conveniently renew your driver license or identification card or leisurely change the address without leaving the comfort of your computer.

"Driver license and identification card holders are required by law to renew their license and ID card every six years. State law also requires that they change the address on their license or ID card within 30 days of moving to a new location." said Col. Thomas Davis, Jr., Director of the Department of Public Safety. "Eligible individuals can accomplish these requirements by visiting Texas Online."

DPS has offered eligible individuals the option of renewing their driver license or identification card over the Internet since 2001. Individuals are eligible for these services as long as they are: 18 years of age, within one year of the license or identification card expiring, and did not renew online, by mail or telephone at their last renewal.

Ineligible driver license and ID card holders include: those who have an expired, revoked, or suspended license or identification card, individuals who possess a provisional driver license or a commercial driver license.

Renewing or changing the address of your driver license or identification card online is simple. Individuals must have information from their current license or identification card, as well as a valid credit card or debit card that does not require the entry of a PIN to complete the online transaction. Address changes may be made separately or in conjunction with a renewal.

The online change of address service fee is only $11; however, if a license holder chooses to renew at the same time as changing the address, the total charge is only $25.

The official website for the State of Texas provides instant access to a network of state and local government agencies, where driver license and identification card services are available in both English and Spanish. For more information, (click here).
