Replace a Driver License

If your driver license has been damaged, lost or stolen, you can obtain a duplicate driver license. The DMV makes obtaining a duplicate driver license convenient by offering the service online or at a DMV service location. For the online transaction, you must possess a DC REAL ID driver license (star located in upper right corner) or Limited Purpose driver license. Your unique driver license number, which is contained on previous DMV receipts or driver records, is necessary to maintain the security of your identity.  If you visit a DMV service location to obtain a duplicate, be sure to review the requirements for in-person replacement driver license because the document requirements have changed, and you will be need to bring additional items with you.
