Save time and renew your license online

July 31, 2012

Most motorists in the state of Texas renew their driver’s licenses during the summer months than any other time of the year.
More than 1.3 million license renewals, which is nearly 30 percent of the annual total, take place during the summer. With this fact in place, lines at Texas Driver License offices get longer as well.
However, Texas drivers don’t have to pack up their paperwork or spend their gas money traveling to a driver license office and standing in line to renew. Instead, eligible current licensees can renew their license online at Texas.gov/Driver.
