Required Documentation—Expired Driver’s License

Expired license renewal is a little more complicated if your license has been expired for one year or more to obtain a Real ID-compliant driver’s license.

You’ll need to bring some special paperwork, including: If your license has been expired for 5 years or more, you will need to bring the following:
  • State-issued birth certificate OR valid passport
  • Original Social Security Card (cannot accept laminated card)
  • 2 proofs of current physical address
  • State-issued birth certificate OR valid passport
  • Original Social Security Card (cannot accept laminated card)
  • 2 proofs of current physical address
  • Written test
  • Road test

(Click here for a full list of acceptable documents for a Real ID-compliant license)

Typically, your license will expire 30 days after your birthday. You can renew your expired driver’s license up to 90 days before the expiration date.

IMPORTANT REAL ID INFORMATION REGARDING MAIDEN NAME/NAME CHANGES

  • If your proof of identity document (birth certificate, social security card, passport, etc.) does not contain your current full legal name, you must present official documents reflecting any name change(s). This may include a marriage certificate, divorce decree, adoption records or court order.
  • In a case of multiple name changes, you must present official documents for each name change. Divorce decrees must reference the maiden name or former name before marriage.
  • If your passport or identity document contains your current legal name, you do not need to provide proof of a name change.
