Replacing your lost or stolen driver's license is now more convenient because the District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles will allow you to order a duplicate license either online or in person at a DMV service location.
You'll need to provide the following original documents:
- Driver's License Application
- Proof of your identity
- Proof of your Social Security number
- Proof of your current residency (if you have moved)
After you present your documents, you will pay a $20 fee and receive your duplicate license.
You can request a duplicate license online only if your name has not changed and there are more than 10 days until your license expires. Gather up the following information when you are preparing to request a duplicate license online:
- Your driver's license number
- Your name and Social Security number
- Credit card to pay the $20 fee (the DMV doesn't accept American Express)
The DMV will mail your duplicate license to the address it has for you on record.
If you are traveling and lose your license, you can request a replacement license online. However, the license will be mailed to your home address, not to your current location.Other Topics in This SectionArticles
