How to Renew a Driver's License in Utah

A Utah Driver's License can be renewed online, by mail or in person at any driver license office in the State. Every alternate renewal has to be made in person.

WHEN TO RENEW YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE

  1. Your Utah driver's license is valid for five years and will generally expire on your birthday. If you are under 21 years of age, your license will expire on your 21st birthday.
  2. You can renew your license up to six months before expiration.
  3. There is no grace period in Utah. If your license expires, you have to take the written test and the road test again.

TO RENEW IN PERSON

You must bring:

  1. Your expiring license and Proof of Identity if the expiring license is not available
  2. If your name has changed, documentation of the name change is required.
  3. Renewal fee of $25 or $13 (if you are 65 or older), payable by cash or check (credit cards not accepted).
  4. A completed application.
You may need to take a vision test.    

RENEWAL BY MAIL OR ONLINE

You are eligible to renew online or by mail only if you renewed in person the last time and if you have a good driving record (no suspensions, revocations and not more than four reportable traffic violations in the previous five years). If you are eligible it will be clearly noted on your renewal card.

TO RENEW ONLINE

To apply online you need:

  • The renewal notice mailed by the Driver License Division.
  • A valid credit card to make the payment.

TO RENEW BY MAIL

For drivers who qualify, renewal can be completed by mail.

Send the completed renewal by mail application which you will receive with the renewal notification, along with the fee of $20, or $11 if you are 65 or older to:

P.O. Box 144501

Salt Lake City, Utah 84114-4501

Payment instructions will be provided with the notification.

Note: If you are renewing an ‘old style' license, a renewal sticker will be mailed to you, but if you are renewing a digital license, you will get a new license.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Reviews of How to Renew a Driver's License in Utah

I agree that this information has a lot of errors in it. You can only renew your Utah driver's license in person. The renewal by mail program was discontinued in 2009. You do not have take the written and road tests if your license has expired. The official site can be confusing but has better info that this site.

Most of the information on this website is inaccurate. You can only renew a Utah License in person at a local DMV office and there IS a grace period. If your license expires in Utah you DO NOT have to take the written and road test again. Get your facts straight.

My name is oulay phansopha, I renew my license on 2/6/11 but I haven't receive my license yet. My license is expire in March 3.
