Most states allow their residents to renew their motorcycle license in person, by mail or online. Each state's DMV sends notifications to motorcycle license holders a couple of months before their licenses expire, letting them know that it's time for a renewal. In some states, motorcycle licenses are valid for a year, while in others, they are valid for as long as 5 years.
