I’ve got to renew my driver’s license pretty soon, but I live in Dallas, and the lines at the DMV are always super long. Can I renew it online instead?

We agree—the DMV is no fun! You can renew your driver’s license online in Texas up to two years before or after the expiration date as long as you meet the following requirements:
  • You’re a U.S. citizen
  • Your Social Security number is already on file
  • You last renewed your Texas license in person
  • You don’t have a hazardous materials endorsement
  • You’re at least 30 days out from turning 18 and your license is a provisional license
  • You’re younger than 79 years old
  • Your vision, mental, and physical conditions have not changed your ability to drive safely since your last renewal
  • You have a commercial license and you have a valid medical certificate that isn’t expired
  • Your license is not suspended or revoked
For the renewal process, you’ll need the last four digits of your Social Security number and the audit number from your current license card. You’ll also need a printer for your temporary license and a valid credit card to pay the $33 fee.
Once you’ve taken care of your license renewal, it may be a good idea to revisit your car insurance policy—because you’re probably overpaying. Luckily, the Jerry app can help you find the lowest possible rates for the coverage you’re looking for—all in just a few minutes! The average user saves over $800 every year on car insurance.
