Utah License Renewal: A Step-by-Step Guide

Drivers License
Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) oversees the license renewal process. The state sends a notice detailing the date of your renewal and important information about your legibility. Drivers may check the license renewal through Utah’s online portal or call 801-965-4437 to check with a person.

You will renew your license every 5 years when it expires on your birth date of the 5th year.

Renewals are available:

  • Online
  • In-Person

Drivers can renew their license up to 6 months before the expiration. You may need to take a written test during the renewal if you’ve accumulated 4 citations within 5 years, had your license suspended or revoked, or if it’s been expired for more than 6 months.

The following shares a quick and easy guide to renewing your driver’s license in Utah.

How to Renew Your UT Driver’s License

A valid UT driver’s license is required if you drive on state roads and highways. You can make the process faster by printing and filing the renewal form (see below) before going in person. Else, refer to the online renewal guide if this option is noted on your notice.

In-Person Renewals

Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome when doing your renewal.

  1. Locate your nearest UT DMV station
  2. Provide your UT driver’s license
    1. Plus: SSN and legal presence if applying for a REAL ID during the visit
  3. Provide proof of residency (if it’s not the same as the license)
    1. Bring two (2) documents showing UT residency
  4. Submit the Driver’s License/ID Card Application (DLD6a)
  5. Get your photo taken
  6. Pass the eye test
  7. Pay the renewal fees:

This process is the same for out-of-state drivers that won’t be in the state during the 6-month renewal window. The driver can renew more than 6 months before expiration, in in-person.
