More Texas motorists renew their drivers licenses during June, July and
August than at any other time of the year. In fact, more than 1.3
million license renewals nearly 30 percent of the annual total take
place during the summer. Consequently, lines at Texas Driver License
offices get longer, too.
But Texas drivers dont have to pack up their paperwork or spend gas
money traveling to a driver license office and standing in line to
renew. Instead, eligible current licensees may renew online at Texas.gov/Driver.
Online renewals are available to Texas residents ages 18-79 who are U.S.
citizens, whose current licenses expire in less than one year and have
not been expired for more than a year, and whose most recent renewal was
in person at a Texas Driver License office. Other eligibility
requirements are available on the Texas Department of Public Safety website.
On average, more than 2,000 Texans visit the Texas.gov/Driver
website daily to renew their driver licenses and take care of other
driver-related needs. Annually, almost 50 percent of eligible license
holders renew online, not only avoiding standing in line, but also
sidestepping the possibility of getting to the renewal office without
the correct paperwork. In addition, online applicants can renew 24/7,
whether Texas Driver License offices are open or not, in only a few
minutes and from the comfort of their own homes in effect, being the
only ones in line.
