Replacing your lost, stolen, or destroyed Alaska driver's license with the Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is simple.
Also check our section on how to replace a lost commercial driver's license (CDL) if your CDL has been lost, stolen, or destroyed.
The fee for a replacement driver's license or CDL is $15.
Here's what you will need to take with you to the DMV to replace your driver's license:
- 2 pieces of identification.
- Cash, check, or money order for $15 for the duplicate license fee.
You must also be prepared to do the following in order to replace your driver's license:
- Pass the vision test.
- Have a new photograph taken.
The expiration date on your replacement license will remain the same as on the original license.
If you have a driver's license issued from another state after your last Alaska driver's license was issued, you will be required to apply for a new driver's license as if you had never had an Alaska driver's license.
If you have recently moved, be sure to notify the DMV of your change of address.
If you lose your Alaska driver's license while out of state, you can receive a temporary license by mail or fax. This way you can legally drive until you return to Alaska and obtain a new license.
The fee for a temporary license is $5.
