Non-commercial driver licenses are valid for a maximum of 8 years and Commercial driver licenses are valid for a maximum of 5 years. ID cards for individuals 18 years of age and older will be valid for a period of up to 8 years; for those under the age of 18, ID cards will be valid for up to 5 years.

Individuals who apply for a limited term driver’s license, learner’s permit or ID card, will continue to be issued a product with a period of validity that equals their duration of lawful status in the United States and the fee would be prorated for that duration. However, for anyone under the age of 21, the fee is not prorated for a learner’s permit, ID card, or driver’s license. The commercial driver's learner’s permit fee cannot be prorated. Commercial drivers and applicants must renew in person and they will not be able to use the mail, MVA kiosk, or the MVA web site.
