Expired Driver Licenses
PLEASE NOTE: When renewing your drivers license, you will have the option to verify your identity through the Select CT ID Program. People verifying will get a gold star on the license. Those declining will have one stamped "Not for Federal Identification." The difference could be extra screening under a proposed federal program slated to go into effect in 2017 for airports and federal buildings and also use for possible commercial transactions. For more information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions about the Select CT ID Program.
If your Connecticut drivers license has been expired for two years or less, you do not have to retake the driving test. You may appear in person without an appointment at your nearest DMV office or AAA location.
Bring your expired drivers license or one (1) form of identification from the primary or secondary list of acceptable forms of identification. Note: Photocopies will not be accepted.
If DMV does not have your image on file, you will be required to present two (2) forms of identification from the primary or secondary list of acceptable forms of identification.
NOTE: A $25 late fee will be charged for the renewal of an expired drivers license.
The fee for a six year renewal of a non-commercial drivers license license is $72.00.
If your drivers license has been expired more than two years, you will be required to complete all testing requirements again. Please see Obtaining a License for the First Time for detailed information regarding testing.
Note: If your license is suspended here or in any other state, your license will not be renewed until your license privilege is restored.
