Wyoming License Renewal: Step-by-Step

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (DOT) oversees the license renewal process.

Your Wyoming license is good for 4 years. The state will send a renewal notice when the expiration date approaches (usually up to 120 days in advance) detailing what’s needed to renew your license.

You can check your license validity and expiration date by requesting driving records. Otherwise, take note of its expiration on the card, call your local DMV, or refer to your notes.

You can renew your Wyoming driver’s license:

  • In-person
  • By mail

Gather your personal documents, driver information, and payment to complete the process. Do note that you can only renew by mail ever 8 years – you’ll need to renew in-person if you plan to change your personal information (e.g. full name on file).

The following sections share the step-by-step process to renew your WY driver’s license.
