DMV: Driver's License - Refunds

License Refunds

Holiday Schedule:  On Friday, May 26, DMV offices will close at  12:30 p.m. for the Memorial Day holiday, and remain closed on Saturday, May 27.  Offices will reopen at 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday, May 30.  More information can be found here.  

Connecticut law does not provide for a refund on a Connecticut operator's license fee.  However, if an individual renews his/her license and becomes deceased before the expiration of his/her previous license (birthday), a refund can be issued to the heirs on the grounds that the renewed license was never used.

To request a reimbursement, please submit a letter explaining the set of circumstances.  Be sure to include the recently renewed license and a copy of the operator's Certificate of Death and mail to:

Department of Motor Vehicles
 Bureau of Customer Services
 60 State Street
 Wethersfield, Connecticut 06161
