ITD Offers Alternative to Renewing Expiring License in Person
If you've been dreading the trip to the DMV to renew your Idaho Drivers License that's set to expire in November or December, you've got a new option.
Those of you who listen to the show know that I've felt like the worst wife on the planet for months because I just haven't been able to muster the patience to go wait at the DMV to legally change my name to my married name. Burn half a vacation day to go stand in line for four hours with no promise of actually being able to get my ID? No thanks.
In the long run, it's not the end of the world because my current license doesn't expire until 2022. You might not be quite as lucky and have one that expires before the end of 2018. With all the hustle and bustle that the upcoming holiday season brings to your life and no sign of the software kinks causing the long lines being worked out any time soon, the idea of wasting precious time at the DMV is flat out agonizing.
ITD's heard you and is offering a temporary solution for drivers who's license expires this November or December. According to KTVB, if that's you, you'll be mailed a form to fill out that allows you to renew it via snail mail. Should there be a need to expand that option into 2019, that's an option but not in the current plans.
If your license already expired or will expire before the end of the month, you can renew by mail too, but you'll have to visit a DMV to pick up the form. It won't be mailed to you.
