How To Renew Your Idaho Drivers License

Do you need to renew your drivers license in Idaho? We've collected useful and up-to-date information to help save you time when renewing your drivers license. Select from the options below to get started. 

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to assistance in preparing official forms, the value added services and products you will receive include a comprehensive Easy Guide™ containing information relevant to your service needs; 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a DMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DMV office. Varying DMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DMV allows you to make a personal appointment.




Renewing Your Idaho Drivers License

Your Idaho drivers license is eligible for renewal up to 25 months before it is set to expire, and the Idaho drivers license renewal is then valid for either four years, or eight if you are between the ages of 21 and 62.

To complete an Idaho drivers license renewal, you will need to bring your current driver's license to your local driver licensing office. Once there, you will have to:

  • Pay any applicable fees
  • Take the vision test

If you receive an Idaho driver's license renewal notice in the mail, you are eligible to mail in the application that comes with the Idaho driver's license renewal notice to the address listed on the form. There is an additional $1 fee to have the new Idaho drivers license or sticker mailed back to you.
