    Determine the Status of Your License

    You must have a current license to legally drive, so be sure to know when your license expires. You must also have auto insurance coverage that meets the state's requirements. If you're looking for insurance, be sure to browse through our Insurance Center.

    Valid License

    Class C (standard) and M (motorcycle) licenses need to be renewed every 4 years. (If you're a commercial driver, refer to our Renewing Your CDL page for information on your situation.)

    Renew your license by either of these methods:

    • By mail
    • In person

    You can always check your license status by obtaining a copy of your driver record.

    Expired License

    If you let your license expire, you will need to apply for a new license be retaking all of your written and driving exams again.

    Suspended License

    Suspended license issues can be difficult to navigate. If you're confused about your license status, you can purchase a copy of your driver record. Also, your insurance rates will likely go up when your license has been suspended, so it's a good idea to search our Insurance Center to find the most affordable rates available.

    Consult our Suspended License article to see how to get your license reinstated, as well as the costs involved.

    Lost License

    See our Replacing a Lost License page to learn how to receive a duplicate license.

    Check Your Renewal Notice

    Within 120 days of your license expiration date, the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) should send a renewal application to your address on file if you're eligible to renew by mail. If you didn't receive your notice and you think you should have, call WYDOT at (307) 777-4800.

    If you're planning to renew in person, you don't need to bring this form with you to the driver exam station.

    Renew by Mail

    You may only renew using this option every other renewal period, once every 8 years.

    You'll need to:

    1. Complete a Wyoming Driver License/Identification Card Application.
    2. Provide copies of 2 documents proving Wyoming residency.
    3. Include payment for your $15 renewal fee.

    Send everything to:

    • WYDOT
    • Driver Services
    • 5300 Bishop Blvd
    • Cheyenne, WY 82009

    Please note that the renewal fee for motorcycle licenses is an additional $3.

    Allow up to 60 days to process your driver's license. If your current driver's license will expire during this time, consider renewing in person.

    Current Military Personnel

    If you're actively enrolled in the military, you may apply for a license extension through the mail under certain conditions and bypass the vision test and renewal fee.

    Out-of-State Residents

    If you're a civilian temporarily living away from the state, you may renew by mail providing you meet the mail qualifications. Otherwise, you'll need to renew in person as soon as you return. Call (307) 777-4800 for more information.

    Renew in Person

    You must renew your license in person at least once every 8 years. Visit any DMV office with:

    • Your current Wyoming driver's license.
    • Your birth certificate or U.S. passport.
    • Proof of your Social Security number.
    • 2 documents proving your Wyoming residency.
    • Proof of name change, if applicable.
    • A Medical Evaluation Form and/or Vision Evaluation Form, if applicable.
    • Payment for your $15 renewal fee.

    You'll also need to pass a vision test and have your photo taken while at the DMV office.

    Allow the DMV 60 days to process your renewal.

    Update Your Driving Skills

    It's important to keep your driving knowledge and skills sharp. An easy way to do this is by completing a traffic school course. Doing so may even lower your insurance bills. Contact your provider for more information, or visit our Insurance Center to find a carrier that offers that kind of discount.
