It’s that time again: time to renew your driver’s license at MVD Express. We know that your birthday is a time to celebrate, not wait in long lines, but you won’t have to worry about that when you visit one of our convenient New Mexico locations. MVD Express has the fastest, friendliest license renewal service in New Mexico.


If you are renewing your driver’s license for the first time since the Real ID Act of 2005 has been implemented in New Mexico (November 2016), then you will need to present documentation to obtain either a standard driver’s license/identification card or a Real ID-compliant license, which includes:

For a Standard Driver’s License For a Real ID-compliant license
Two proofs of identification number (SSN) One (1) proof of identity (birth certificate or passport)
One (1) proof of federal identification number (SSN)
Two (2) proofs of New Mexico residency Two (2) proofs of New Mexico residency
See the full list of acceptable documents here. See the full list of acceptable documents here.

In addition to the new documentation requirements, if your license has been expired for 5 years or more, you’ll be required to take the written Test (must pass with at least 70%).



  • 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.

If you do not have any of the above documents please call us for more information at (505) 218-7448.
