To renew your driver’s license in Massachusetts, you’ll need to go online to Mass.Gov/RMV, then select Online Service Center. From there, you can just follow the prompts to verify your identity and renew your license. You’ll receive your license in the mail.
If you don’t look like your license photo anymore, however, you should visit your local RMV service center to have a new photo taken. You may have difficulty using your license to verify your identity if you don’t match the picture on your ID, which can be inconvenient at best.
While you’re updating your license photo, why not update your car insurance, too? With the comparison shopping super app Jerr​​y, you can find the best rates available on the coverage you need in a matter of minutes. Download the app and create a free account to learn more.
