DONíT WAIT: Renew a week or more before your birthday. You will not receive a permanent driver license or ID card while at a DMV office, AAA location, Milford Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union or West Haven City Hall.   It will arrive through the mail.  You will keep your expiring license/ID and receive a temporary paper card.  For more on this, please see Central Issuance.  After visiting an office, you can track the delivery of your new card.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you are renewing your non-driver ID card you will have the option to verify your identity through the Real ID Program.  People verifying will get a gold star on the ID card.  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 2020 for airports and federal buildings and also use for possible commercial transactions.  For more information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions about the Real ID Program.
