Pre-apply online

Pre-apply – our online process of getting your first license, instruction permit, or ID card.

Pre-applying saves you time in our office. At the end you’ll get a confirmation ID. Print and bring the confirmation ID with you when you visit our office. We’ll use it to pull up and finish your application.
