When does my driver’s license expire?

​A. The Louisiana driver's license of members of the Armed Forces/Peace Corps and their dependents who serve outside of Louisiana shall remain valid for 60 days after discharge, provided the license was valid upon entrance to service and not expired, suspended, or revoked. The driver's license will be expired/delinquent on the 61st day after discharge. The last license issued and proof of discharge shall be accepted to renew license. This provision does not apply to a Commercial Driver's License (CDL Class A/B/C) which must be renewed in person. These types of licenses will be considered "expired" on their expiration date. No extension of the expiration is granted. 

To keep Military/Peace Corps personnel and dependents driver’s license active and prevent the license from being purged from the computer system, the military flag must be set. You should have this flag set immediately upon entering the Armed Forces or Peace Corps. If you are currently stationed out of state or out of country, you may send your written request to have your license flagged as military. Please include your name, driver’s license number, your Louisiana home of record address, current out of state mailing address, and a copy of the front and back of your military I.D. If your license expired prior to issuance of military I.D., you must furnish evidence of enlistment date and current military I.D. If you are currently in Louisiana, please take this same information to your local Office of Motor Vehicles to have the military flag set.
