Documents Needed to Replace a Driver’s License

Since the rollout of the Real ID Act, replacing a lost driver’s license requires presenting the same documents you need to get a brand new license. You also get the choice (until about 2020) if you want to replace the same type of license you lost (that is, a non-federal compliant license, now called a Driver Authorization Card or DAC) or a Real ID-compliant license. For both licenses, you need to provide:

  • One (1) proof of identity and age
  • One (1) proof of identification number (SSN)
  • Two (2) proofs of New Mexico residency

What fits the bill depends on the type of license you want. Click here for a full list of acceptable documents for a DAC and here for the list of documents for a Real ID-compliant license.

You’ll be in and out of MVD Express within minutes with a new temporary driver’s license in hand and peace of mind that you have identification with you at all times.

Important Information about New Driver’s Licenses

The state of New Mexico manufactures driver’s licenses at a secure facility. When you leave MVD Express, you will have a temporary card that can be used until your permanent license arrives in the mail. It may take up to 40 days for your new driver’s license to be delivered.

It is also important to understand that all males between the ages of 18 and 26 must sign up for Selective Service in order to receive a Driver’s License. Click here for the Selective Service System.
