    Renewing Your Driver’s License in Utah

    When your Utah driver’s license expires, you need to renew through the Department of Public Safety (DPS) Driver License Division.

    On this page you’ll find information on how to renew your UT driver’s license online or in person.

    When to Renew Your Utah Driver’s License

    Driver’s licenses in Utah are scheduled for renewal every 2 years. Depending on the status of your license, you’ll have the option to renew:

    • Online.
    • In person.

    Your requirements will vary depending on whether your driver license is currently:

    • Valid.
    • Expired.
    • Suspended.
    • Damaged, lost, or stolen.

    After your renewal, you will receive your new UT driver’s license in the mail in about 3 weeks. You will be issued a temporary license to use until you receive your new card.

    NOTE: If you are not a U.S. citizen and you need to renew your UT driver’s license, please see the “Non-U.S. Citizen Driver’s License Renewals” section below.

    Valid Driver’s License

    If you hold a valid UT driver license, you can renew it up to 6 months before it expires.

    If you are going to be out of state when your UT driver license expires, you can renew it more than 6 months before the expiration. See the “Military and Out-of-State Driver’s License Renewals” section below for more information.

    NOTE: If you are eligible to renew online, you will receive a renewal notice in the mail. Please see the “Online Utah Driver’s License Renewal” section below.

    Expired Drivers License

    If your UT driver’s license has been expired for more than 6 months, in addition to the usual renewal process, you’ll need to pass a written knowledge exam.

    Suspended Driver’s License

    If your Utah driver license is suspended, you’ll need to reinstate your driving privileges before you can renew it.

    For more information, please see our Suspended UT Driver’s License page.

    Check Your Driving Record
