Renewing a Drivers License in Oregon

Renew Oregon Driver’s License or Photo ID

You can renew your Oregon driver’s license or ID up to 1 year before or after it expires. People in the military have until 6 months after discharge to renew. Please note that the temporary license you receive when you first renew is NOT accepted by many government agencies.

To renew your license or photo ID, you’ll need to visit your local Driver and Motor Vehicles (DMV) office. Consider making an appointment to avoid waiting in line.

NOTE: REAL ID compliant driver’s licenses and IDs have different requirements than standard IDs.

At the DMV office, you’ll need to:

  • Provide proof of your:
    • Identity.
    • Oregon residency. If you are a limited-term resident, bring proof that your stay is authorized.
  • Take a vision exam if you are 50 years old or older (only applies to driver’s license renewal). Bring your contacts or glasses if you need them.
  • Get your photo taken.
  • Pay the applicable renewal fee.

If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), you may have to also present medical certification when you renew.

Once you complete the transaction, you’ll receive a temporary license or ID to use while you wait for your next card to come in the mail.
