Texas Drivers License Renewal

Texas Drivers License Renewal

Your Texas Drivers License renewal comes around every six years.


What's nice is that you don't have to go into the office every single time. Every other renewal of your Texas driver licence may be done through mail, phone, or online.


It's very convenient when you don't always have to apply in person.


If application through these three procedures above does not qualify for your renewal, going to the Texas Driver's Licensing office in person would be your best bet, and for that matter, your only other option.

Before we talk about that further, I wanted to take a minute and let you know that your Texas Drivers License Renewal is a good time to take a Driver Safety course to brush up on your basic driving skills.


If you do complete the course, you get a huge benefit that results in a financial reward. You will save money on your insurance rates - much more than the cost of the course. You'll feel a sense of accomplishment, too.


Now, back to your Texas Drivers License Renewal. :) The guides below will help you in running a smooth and fuss-free drivers license Texas renewal, without the hassle of second-trips.

Texas Driver License Renewal
Online or Over the Phone

  1. You need to have a current class C or CM driver's license that is either expiring within a year, or has expired in at most two years. Also, your previous or most recent renewal must have been done in person at a Texas driver's licensing office, and you must not have any outstanding traffic tickets.


  2. Visit the website of the Texas Driver's License Division and follow the instructions stated for renewal online. It will be advisable for you to print a copy of your transaction for your records. Your license will arrive after 15-20 days.


  3. If you wish to renew by phone, just dial 1-866-357-3639 and follow the instructions on renewing your license. Just like in renewing online, payment will be made by credit card. It is also essential for you to update your address so that there will be no problem with the delivery of your Texas driver licence. After 15-20 days, your license will be delivered.

Texas Drivers License Renewal in Person

  1. Go to a Texas driver's license facility. Visit their official website to know more about their exact locations and office hours. This way, you can be sure that the schedule you will be choosing in going to their office is correct. You don’t want to make the trip only to discover that the office is closed. I've actually done that myself!


  2. Bring proof of identity such as your old license, if not expired for more than two years, a passport, or a US citizenship certificate. If you wish to bring your birth certificate, you will need to bring two supporting documents, such as vehicle title or school records. For more information regarding the requirements, visit the website of the Texas Driver's Licensing Department.


  3. Verify your Social Security number. This should be on file for renewal purposes. If not, bring any valid documentation with your social security number on it, such as a Medicare card or college transcript.


  4. Prepare yourself for the vision test and pay the renewal fee.


That's about it! With the steps I have listed above, I hope you’ll be guided on your next Texas license renewal.


By following these simple measures, you can prevent the hassle of going back because you don’t have the proper paperwork, etc. This will definitely save you time, money and effort.
