No matter how careful you are with your possessions, you may lose your license at some point.

No matter how careful you are with your possessions, you may lose your license at some point. If you do, there are a few reasons you are required to replace your D.C. driver’s license. First, the DC DMV requires all drivers to have a valid driver’s license when they use the roads. Additionally, replacing your driver’s license helps to protect you from identity theft. So if you lose your license, there are some steps you should take to protect yourself and make sure that you’re following the rules of the road. Here’s what to do if you lose your license.

Methods of Replacing Your License

There are several avenues you can take to replace your DC driver’s license conveniently. The traditional way of replacing your license is by visiting your local DMV office and filling out the necessary paperwork. If you aren’t able to visit a DC DMV location, you can also replace your license by mailing in the forms or even filling out all the necessary paperwork online. Many drivers opt for online license replacement due to the convenience and ease of filling out the paperwork in a straightforward web portal. By completing the online transaction and entering your unique DC driver’s license number, you can expect your license in the mail on time.

Required Items to Bring

To replace your DC driver’s license, you will need to provide a valid ID document, proof of residency, and your unique DC driver’s license number, which can be found on your DC driving record. Your proof of residency should provide evidence that you have been a resident of the district at least six months before filing for a replacement license.

Identity Documents

There are several documents you can use as your identification when replacing your license through the DC DMV. One document should provide your social security number. Often, drivers will use their social security cards for this. Additionally, you will be required to provide proof of identification, which can take many forms, including state-issued photo identification and birth certificates. There is a list of approved identification documents readily available to drivers on the DC DMV website.
