What if you are away from Indiana?

If your Indiana license has been lost or stolen while you are out of the state, you may obtain a 30-day interim that will allow you to return to Indiana and obtain a replacement license. 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 mail 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 license branch and show proof of your discharge.
