An Alabama Driver's License can be renewed either in person at any local driver's license office in the State, or by mail.
WHEN TO RENEW YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE
- Your Alabama driver's license normally comes up for renewal every four years from the date of issue.
- You can renew your driver's license up to 60 days prior to date of expiration. Alabama also gives you a 60 day grace period after expiration to renew your license.
TO RENEW IN PERSON
You must bring:
- Your expiring license.
- Acceptable proof of identity.
- Renewal fee is usually $23.
Once you apply for a renewal you will be issued a temporary license while your regular license is being processed. The regular driver's license will be mailed to you within 2 weeks of your application.
TO RENEW BY MAIL
Renewal by mail is available to residents who happen to be temporarily out of state.
