Replacing Your Driver’s License or Identification Card

You may replace your driver's license or identification card online at any time after it has been printed and mailed to you. However, you may only replace a learner’s permit, driver's license, or identification card a maximum of 10 times online before you must visit a BMV branch.

Replacing your driver’s license or identification online is a request for an exact duplication of your most recently issued credential and therefore no changes may be made to the information displayed on your card. If you need your replacement card sent to a different mailing address you must update your mailing address online prior to completing your online replacement application.

WHAT IF YOU ARE AWAY FROM INDIANA?

If your Indiana driver’s license or identification card has been lost or stolen while you are out of the state, you may obtain a 30-day interim credential allowing you to return to Indiana and obtain a replacement. To obtain a 30-day interim credential, you will need to complete a Request for Interim/Extension License or Military Extension Letter - State Form 54580 and have it mailed to the address listed on the form.

If you are temporarily living outside Indiana because you are serving in the military, your license remains valid for 90 days following your discharge from service. You may be eligible for online renewal or replacement. To renew your expired license after you have been discharged, you need to visit a BMV branch and show proof of your discharge.
