The following items are required to renew your driver's license:
Your Louisiana driver's license which you have in your possession
Valid credit card backed by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express
If your address is different than what appears on the face of your license, you are not eligible for internet renewal. Louisiana law requires your current address to appear on the face of your license. You must visit an office to renew.
It can take up to 30 days for a customer to receive a credential. If the credential is not received 30 days from the date of application, the customer must visit a field office within sixty (60) days of application to be eligible for a replacement credential at no charge.
NOTICE: Louisiana Law requires that all vehicles you have registered be currently covered with the required limits of liability insurance or other security as provided under R.S. 32:861 et al. The law is enforced by civil and criminal penalty.
Changes in personal information, including address, are not allowed by using the Internet or mail-in method of renewal. If you require any changes, you must visit your local Office of Motor Vehicles for issuance of a new driver's license.
NOTICE: On October 3, 2016, Louisiana began issuing Real ID compliant credentials. In order to obtain a credential with a Real ID indicator, you must visit a motor vehicle office. If choosing to utilize the internet renewal process, the credential you receive will display the verbiage "Not for Federal Identification". Please visit www.expresslane.org for information on Real ID requirements.
