​​Driver License Renewal

Make an Appointment

Skip the line at driver license offices by making an appointment online. If you do not find an available appointment, please continue to check back as new available appointments are added each day.

The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicle mails drivers a reminder card about 60 days before their license expires several options for renewing or ordering a replacement driver license or ID card.

Drivers can renew their license up to six months before it expires at any NCDMV driver license office, and in many cases, online. Licenses can be renewed online up to two years after the expiration date, otherwise renewals must be done in-person at an NCDMV office.

Renewing a State ID
