Drivers License Renewal

  • You can renew your drivers license up to 25 months before it expires
  • Renewing early doesn’t affect your license expiration date, so you can save yourself some time by planning well ahead of the expiration date
  • If you plan on changing your name, you MUST change it with the Social Security Administration Office FIRST before you can renew your license – details HERE

Idaho’s driver’s licenses & ID cards

  • Plastic cards are produced at a secure, central facility and mailed to the customer within 3 weeks. The card is mailed in an unmarked envelope, much the same way credit cards or passports are mailed. 
  • Applicants leave the county driver licensing office with a temporary card, valid for 60 days. This temporary card is printed on special security paper with a black and white digital image. 
  • Current Idaho licenses and ID cards remain valid until it is time to renew. 
  • Drivers’ License cards incorporate numerous security features, including micro-printing, ghost images and a laser-perforated pattern that reveals the shape of Idaho when held to the light. 

The temporary document

  • A temporary driver’s license or identification card will be issued to use for identification and driving purposes until the plastic card is mailed in approximately 3 weeks. If you not receive your card after this time period please call 208-334-8735.
  • The temporary document contains a photo and all of the information that is contained on the plastic card, including the machine-readable barcode. 
  • It is printed on security paper, which contains ultra-violet (UV) fibers throughout. These fibers can be easily detected under a UV light source. The paper’s reverse side features the Idaho state seal, and is color-washed with thermochromatic ink that temporarily turns white when warmed by the touch. 
  • When the plastic card arrives in the mail, the temporary document should be destroyed. 

Central Issuance

  • Means driver’s licenses and identification (ID) cards will be produced at a central, secure location and then mailed to you. You will receive a temporary license or identification card; the new card will be sent to your mailing address in approximately 3 weeks.
