DMV: Driver's License - Renewing - Incarcerated Persons

Incarcerated Persons Wanting to Renew a License

SERVICE ADVISORY:  DMV will close for the Labor Day holiday as usual on Friday, Sept. 4, at 12:30 p.m. and will not have its half-day office hours the next day, Saturday. This follows contractual agreements related to state and federal holidays that occur on Mondays as Labor Day does. Offices will reopen Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 7:45 a.m. 

PLEASE NOTE:  If you are renewing your driver's license ON OR AFTER OCTOBER 3, 2011, you will have the option to verify your identity through the Select CT ID Program.  However, you may not verify your identity through the mail.  Customers who wish to verify his or her driver's license must do so in-person.   

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.

Incarcerated persons who want to renew their Connecticut operator's licenses may do so. In order to qualify for renewal by mail, your current Connecticut license must contain your photo. Please see Requirements to Obtain a License Through the Mail for detailed information.

NOTE:  A $25 late fee will be charged for the renewal of an expired driver's license.
