License Renewal in Wyoming
COVID-19 Effects on Licensing Services
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, state DMVs nationwide have closed driver licensing offices, extended license and registration expiration dates, and/or limited the transactions they are processing. If possible, residents should use the DOT's online services to complete any relevant transactions. Follow the DOT's most recent updates for the latest information.
If your Wyoming driver's license is nearing its expiration date, you'll need to submit a renewal application to the Wyoming Department of Transportation (DOT).
On this page, you'll find instructions on how to renew your driver's license before it expires.

Wyoming REAL ID Licenses
The Wyoming DOT issues federally-compliant REAL ID driver’s licenses in addition to standard driver’s licenses. Beginning October 2021, the REAL ID will allow you to continue using your license for domestic travel and entry into federal and military buildings—a standard ID will no longer suffice for these activities. After that date, without a REAL ID license, you will need another form of federal identification (like a passport or birth certificate).
If you don't yet have a REAL ID, you must renew your license in person. For more, visit the state's guide to REAL IDs.

When to Renew Your WY Driver's License
NOTE: Make sure your address on file with the WY DOT is correct. If you need to notify the DOT of an address change, view our Changing Your Address page.
Class C (standard) driver's licenses in Wyoming need to be renewed every 4 years.
Within 120 days of your driver's license expiration date, you should receive a renewal application in the mail, if you're eligible to renew by mail. If you didn't receive your notice and you think you should have, call the Wyoming DOT at (307) 777-4800.
If you're planning to renew your driver's license in person, you do not need your renewal notice. You may only renew your license or ID card by mail once every 10 years.
NOTE: If you recently changed your name, you must notify the DOT in person. For more information, read our page about Changing Your Name.
Expired Driver's License
If you let your Wyoming driver's license expire, you will need to apply for a new license and re-take the written knowledge and driving exams again.
To check the status of your driver's license, you can always obtain a copy of your driving record.
