Connecticut residents can now renew their driver’s license and non-driver ID cards online!
Governor Ned Lamont made the announcement on Wednesday. The new service at the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will enable residents to renew their driver’s licenses and non-driver ID cards online without having to visit an office in-person. The announcement is part of Governor Lamont’s broader initiative to modernize state government and add more convenience for residents by making services available online.
The DMV’s new online renewal option has already been offered to residents whose driver’s license or non-driver ID expired within the last 45 days. As part of the soft-launch of the new service during the last two months, more than 20,000 individuals have already successfully renewed online.
Eligible residents will receive an invitation by postal mail or email to complete their transaction online and make an electronic payment via credit or debit card. Upon successful completion of the online renewal, the license or non-driver ID will be received by mail within 20 days.
“The DMV’s accomplishments in announcing this new service are just one part of our broader efforts to be more accessible to our residents, and it became clearer how important that was during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Governor Lamont said. “The DMV rose to the occasion and moved forward quickly to launch online renewal and implement other services, including appointment scheduling, to make sure we not only kept our residents safe but continued our work to modernize state government.”
All of the DMV’s services can be found online by visiting ct.gov/dmv.
