License Renewal

An applicant may change his class of license at renewal or between the renewal periods. Driver's license renewal invitations are issued to all qualified applicants about 100 days in advance of the month of expiration. If you do not receive the invitation, it will be necessary for you to renew your driver's license at your local Office of Motor Vehicles. Restriction changes may be made at any time.
