AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Texas.gov, in partnership with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), provides the state’s only official driver license renewal and change of address service – www.texas.gov/DLrenewal. Offered in English and Spanish, the online application is an easy, secure way for Texans to renew their driver license or identification card online.

As a reminder, DPS requires driver licenses and identification cards to be renewed every six years, and any Texan who has moved must change their address on file with DPS within 30 days. In order to use the online service, certain eligibility requirements such as citizenship, age, and warrant status must be established.

Beware of look-alike websites that are not the official State of Texas website, www.texas.gov. Some private organizations charge unrequired fees for driver license services or information. To prevent fraudulent use of your personal information and to avoid paying unnecessary fees, only renew your driver license or identification card online at these official government agency websites:
- www.texas.gov/driver or www.texas.gov
