Replace a Lost, Stolen, or Mutilated Mississippi Driver's License or ID Card
If your Mississippi driver's license or identification card has been lost, stolen, or mutilated, you can apply for a replacement or duplicate license at your local Highway Patrol Driver License office.
Instructions for replacing a lost, stolen or mutilated Mississippi driver's license or identification card:
A Mississippi driver's license can be replaced through an online application provided you still live in the address printed on your current license or in person. To apply online, visit the Department of Public Safety online services page.
To apply in person follow the instructions below:
- Locate the Mississippi Highway Patrol Driver License office here. Be sure to note the days and hours of operation.
- Bring proper identification. The state of Mississippi requires that you present two pieces of primary ID when applying for a duplicate driver's license or identification card. Alternatively, you can bring one piece of primary ID AND one piece of secondary ID.
Persons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who must provide proof of guardianship and also present a notarized affidavit.
- Bring the correct fee. Normally, there is a $5 cash fee for replacing a lost, stolen, or mutilated license or identification card. If you lose your license the second time, there will be a charge of $ 10 for reissuing the same. Please contact your nearest you to confirm the fee before applying in person, since fees may vary.
