Texas Drivers License Online Renewal
Texas drivers license is usually issued for a period of six years and you must renew it before this time runs out. Although the Department of Public Safety offers a number of drivers license renewal options, the online renewal is definitely the fastest and most convenient one. Unfortunately, not everyone is eligible to renew Texas drivers license online.
Eligibility of Online Renewal
If you would like to renew your Texas drivers license online, you may use the following criteria to check your eligibility. Please note that these criteria can only be used as guidance and only the DPS can give you a definitive answer on whether you are eligible for the online renewal.
You may renew your Texas drivers license online if:
- You are older than 18 and younger than 79
- You do not have any outstanding traffic tickets
- You hold a valid, unexpired Texas drivers license (if your license has already expired, you cannot renew it through the online service)
- Your previous renewal request was not submitted online
- You did not experience any health problems that may affect your ability to drive since your last license renewal. If you do have a condition that may affect your ability to drive, you have to renew your drivers license in person
- You hold a valid VISA or MASTERCARD and are able to pay the required drivers license renewal fees online
If you satisfy all these requirements, the DPS is likely to allow you renew your drivers license online.
