As an active member of the United States armed forces, you often have to sacrifice many things, like time home with your loved ones. Your commitment to the military can take you across the country or around the world.
At MVD Express, we recognize and appreciate the commitment that you have made to protect our country and our freedoms. We know that this amount of commitment can make tasks, like driver’s license renewal, difficult for you, and we want to make the process as quick and simple as possible for you. If you have an existing driver’s license in New Mexico and need to have it renewed while you are out-of-state, MVD Express can help.
What Happens When My Driver’s License Expires?
If your New Mexico driver’s license expires before you are able to renew due to travel or deployment, don’t worry. As an active-duty service member, your license will remain valid up to31 days after you return from your assignment. The only exception to this rule is if your driver’s license has been suspended or revoked.
After you complete your assignment or come home from deployment, you have two options to renew your driver’s license at MVD Express:
- Renewing over the phone. If your New Mexico driver’s license expired less than a year ago, you can renew over the phone. Give us a call at 505.294.1732 to speak to a call center representative.
- Renewing in person. If your New Mexico driver’s license expired more than a year ago, or if you just want to visit us in person, you can renew at any of our MVD Express locations.
We’ll make sure you get done and on your way as quickly as possible–no matter which option you choose!
What to Bring
You won’t need to bring in many documents to get your license renewed. If your license has been expired for less than a year, all you need to bring in is your previous license.
If your driver’s license has been expired for more than one year, you will have to bring in your discharge documents and your expired license.
The experienced customer service agents at MVD Express have got the answers you need if you have questions! Stop in or call 505.294.1732 today to ask a question about military driver’s license renewal or to complete your renewal process. We’ll see you soon!
