They need to get a recent picture of "the madman" into the govt databases. And check your vision.

I almost overlooked mine, and rushed it at the last moment. Last time I renewed online; as a result, for however long (10 years?) my photo showed me beardless--guess what? I've been bearded for that long. This time they wanted it without glasses, but I wear glasses all the time, and I'm toying with shaving the beard. So again I'll not look like the picture for another 10 years... oh well, if I do things right, no one really needs to see it anyhow.

I goofed and didn't pay attention. I wound up looking like Charles Manson in the photo. Even my wife laughed at it. Some day I should go back and demand a new one.

The real id is likely reason they want you to go in and also bring some supporting documents. Make sure you read/bring what you need as I watched people get rejected left and right at local DMV.

Normally you can do online but you are getting a federal id after beyond a drivers license.

Texas DOT has a very good web site that should be able to answer your question. If not call them.

Make sure you bring the proper ID and documentation and get the Real ID, Enhanced ID or whatever they call it. It doesn't cost more and you will be screwed boarding as plane when you try flying to be on the Dr. Phil Show without it.

Here, they don't check your vision, but they do need an updated picture every five years or whatever it is. Of course, that cannot be done online. My plates, which include our basic insurance in Saskatchewan, can be renewed online or by mail.

If I recall correctly, years ago, before the photo licenses appeared, you could renew by mail. That even applied for a while when photos started. The licenses here were two part, a paper annual renewal and a picture that was five years or something like that.

A percentage of police vehicles have plate image capture technology.
So yeah, some but not all.


The police cars with image capture typically look against a fixed list of wanted people/cars. Downloaded daily. They do not do a check for every license plate they capture.

DL's expire at 11:59 PM on the date of Expiration.

Straight from the TxDPS, if you can't renew online, then on their end you don't meet all the required conditions to do so.

You were able to renew your license two years ahead of it expiring so waiting until it expires is nobody's fault but yours.

Sure are a lot of LMGTFY questions...

In this province, the scanners automatically check through our DMV database for expired plates, too. I know that they can check the registered owner's license status at the same time. Whether they do or do not, I cannot say.

In Colorado it expires the day on your license. Typically the day of your birthday.

For the new enhanced licenses that satisfy the newer ID requirements on airplanes and such, you need to go in and show the papers (a couple of proofs of address, a birth certificate and a social security card). For non-enhanced license you still need to prove your vision is adequate, a doctor's signature on a DMV form will do it.

FWIW, in New York years ago, I didn't go down to the office until about a year and a half after my license expired once. They didn't blink an eye, and let me renew it.

Again, you had two years before to get it done before expiration and didn't. Now you are worried about what may happen since you didn't get it done. Who's fault is that?

And yes, you can still renew two years after it expires (in Texas) without taking a full drivers test. That does not mean you won't get a ticket for driving on an expired license.
