Adult Renewal in Person

A person who would need to renew in person:

  • Individuals who received a renewal letter without a pin number. Not receiving a pin number to renew online may be because your last renewal cycle was online. You are required to appear in person and take a new photo every other renewal cycle.
  • Individuals who would like an updated photo or updated credentials.
  • Individuals may be required to take a written knowledge test because of more than six (6) citations in eight (8) years, have been suspended or revoked, or their license has expired for more than six (6) months.

Requirements for renewing your Utah driver license in person:

  • You can renew your Utah driver license six (6) months prior to the expiration date. Suppose your Utah driver license will expire while you are temporarily out of state. In that case, you can apply to renew your Utah driver license more than six (6) months prior to the expiration date if you provide proof that you will be absent from the state during the six (6) month period prior to the expiration date of your driver license.
  • You will need to visit one of our Driver License offices.
  • You will take a photo upon arrival.
  • You will be required to pass the eye test.
  • Submit a nonrefundable fee of $52.00 ($27.00 for 65 and older.)
  • Bring your current Utah driver license.
  • If your Utah residence address has changed from what is on your current driver license, you will be required to provide two (2) documents of your Utah residence address. Visit the Required Documentation page for what is acceptable proof. You can also submit the address change online to avoid having to provide proof when coming into the office to renew.
  • A 25-question open-book written knowledge test may be required if you have had more than six (6) citations in eight (8) years, have been suspended or revoked, or your Utah driver license has expired for more than six (6) months.

Note: If the name from your driver license or identity card is different than the name on your identity document (e.g., birth certificate, passport), it must be accompanied by legal documentation authorizing the name change. These include a certified state marriage certificate, divorce decree, adoption, citizenship, guardianship, or court documents indicating the name change.

Note: By law, you may not possess more than one REAL ID compliant certificate at a time (e.g., a Utah driver license and a Colorado ID.)

After all requirements for a license have been completed, you will receive a temporary license with a photo on the same day. The completed license with an 8-year expiration will be mailed to you in approximately 4-6 weeks.
