Can I renew my driver’s license online in New Mexico?

My grandson tells me I can renew my driver’s license via the Internet, instead of driving my auto over to the Motor Vehicle Division and renewing it in person. Frankly, my grandson is a smart young fella, but I think he’s feeding me a whole lot of hogwash. Can you renew your driver’s license online in New Mexico?

Luckily, your grandson is not full of hogwash (for the most part). The answer is yes, you can renew your driver’s license online in New Mexico, but you must be between 18 and 75 years old to do so.
Here are the rest of New Mexico’s rules for renewing your license online:
  • You must have no pending traffic violations or arrest warrants relating to any road violations
  • Your license must not have been expired for more than one year
  • Your license must not be lost or stolen
  • The current picture on your driver’s license must have been taken after 2008 at a Motor Vehicle Division location
  • You must renew your license every four to eight years
  • After age 79, you must renew your driver’s license every year
