2: By mail, if eligible (read below for instructions)
Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DOT in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DOT.
3: Via a local DOT office
If you prefer to access DOT services in person or your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at a physical DOT office location. Varying DOT offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DOT closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local DOT allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.
