What people are saying...

I just renewed my license in under 5 minutes (including address change) from my couch!

Thank you for the ability to set up an account in which all our vehicle and driver license information can be easily accessed in one place. Since we conduct almost all our business online, this is perfect for us. It was very easy to set up. We are looking forward to trying our first vehicle renewal using our License Express account. Great Idea!
- Marianne and Dave
I signed up and added my car to see what it was like and it is really easy. I'm impressed!
