How is it different?

  • License eXpress (LX) pre-fills your personal information - this saves you time when you renew or use other services within LX.
  • Quickly create a list of all of the vehicles you own and see at a glance when they're due for renewal.
  • If you sell a vehicle, you can report it sold and see when the new owner transfers the title into their name. (Just leave the vehicle in your list until you're no longer shown as the registered owner.)
  • You can look up your license plate or VIN anytime by logging in to your LX account.
  • Easily see all of the addresses we have on file and update them when you need to.
  • You get a customized list of what you need to renew and when.

More features we offer in LX

  • Purchase your drive record.
  • Replace your driver license or ID card, if you’ve lost or misplaced it.
  • Sign up, update, or remove your email renewal reminders we send you for your vehicle or boat.

LX is free to use

  • There’s no additional cost to register or use LX.
  • It works on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. There's nothing to download, all you need is an internet connection.

It’s safe and secure!

We understand how important it is to protect your information. License eXpress is an official DOL service, created and operated by us.

What people are saying...

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