Question How long does it take to get a renewed license by mail?

I sent in a check to DMV because it says I could renew my drivers license by mail. They cashed my check three weeks ago. Still no driver's license. The license expires in a little over two weeks. Is this a normal wait to receive a license by mail?

same thing happened to me, i didn't get my license for over 3 weeks after my license expired. I called them about it and they sent me a temporary paper license that came in 3 days. Then my real license came in the following week.

I need to renew my license too. Its EXPIRED already.

Hash25rs - isn't the Sac DMV like one of the main DMV's? You can just drop yours off there. I can't do that.

What happens if I turned in the papers, didn't get my license back in the mail yet, then get pulled over by the police? I try to avoid driving whenever I can but I need to drive to school.

when they run your license they will see its renewed, you also may want to call the DMV to make sure they got it renewed on file

That's nothin' (but not recommended).


I drove for a year with an expired license. They sent the renewal but I filed it with bills that were paid. I made an appointment with DMV, paid the $15 (there is no penalty), they took my thumbprint and photograph, and I walked out with a temp paper license. It took a few weeks to receive the new license because it was not simply an extension, but a brand new card (which is what the original renewal notice stated).

I also drove for several weeks with expired tags because I sent the payment without the required proof-of-insurance card. Again, made an appointment, showed them the card, and was on my way with new 2004 stickers.

DMV can easily issue a temporary paper license but good luck getting a quick appointment - each appointment I made was a 1½ to 2½ week wait and I tried every DMV within 20 miles. Call them.
