  • The following conditions may prevent you from receiving or being eligible for a duplicate credential:
    • If your mailing address is different than what appears on the face of your license, you are not eligible to request a duplicate online. Louisiana law requires current address on licenses; this is where the duplicate credential will be sent.
    • Changes in personal information, including address, cannot be completed online. If you require any changes, you must visit your local Office of Motor Vehicles for issuance of a new driver's license.
    • If you are temporarily out of state, review the policy here to see if you qualify and then call the Office of Motor Vehicles at 225-925-4195.
  • Your duplicate request will include a Service Charge for electronic commerce in accordance with Louisiana Revised Statute 49:316.1.
  • 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.
  • NOTICE: It can take up to 30 days for a customer to receive a duplicate credential. If the duplicate 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: 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.
