If your Missouri driver's license has been lost or stolen, you must apply for a duplicate license immediately. It is illegal to drive without a valid license in your possession.
To apply for a duplicate license, visit your nearest driver's license office with:
- Proof of identity.
- Proof of Missouri residency.
- Proof of Social Security number.
- Payment for duplicate license fee.
If your license expires within the next six months, you'll be allowed to renew your license instead.
Active-duty military personnel and their dependents can request a duplicate license by completing Form 4317, the Mail-in Driver License Application. However, this form does require proof of military status as well as proof of identity, lawful presence, and legal residency. If you include all supporting documentation and payment for the appropriate fees, the Driver License Bureau will process your application within 10 business days of receiving it.
If you have questions about how to replace a lost, damaged, or stolen driver's license while out of state or country, call the Missouri Department of Revenue's driver support line at (573) 751-2730.
Because it is often used as legal identification, your lost or stolen Missouri driver's license puts you at risk for becoming a victim of identity theft. This crime can destroy your credit, ruin your reputation, and harm your future employment prospects.
To reduce the risk of identity theft, it is recommended that you file a report with local law enforcement officials as soon as you discover your license is missing. This simple precaution will protect you in the event that unauthorized charges have already been made. You may also want to contact your creditors to get a "fraud alert" placed on your credit report. This will stop any new accounts from being opened in your name.
