A Pennsylvania Driver's License can be renewed either by mail or online.
WHEN TO RENEW YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE
Your Pennsylvania driver's license normally has a validity of four years (two years if you are over 65 years of age) and needs to be renewed before its date of expiration based on when the license was issued or renewed. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) normally sends out the renewal notice 90 days in advance.
TO RENEW BY MAIL
TO RENEW ON THE INTERNET:
You can renew online only if there are no corrections or changes required to your license.
- Go to PennDOT's online site to renew online using your driver's license number, social security number and a valid American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa credit/debit card.
- PennDOT will then mail you your camera card, which should be taken to a photo center (along with your social security card and another form of ID) to complete the process of license renewal.
- The license renewal fees are $29.50 for a four-year license and $19 for a two year license.
