What tests will I need to take?

Vision Screening鈥擸our vision will be tested and you must meet a minimum standard of 20/40 vision in at least one eye, with or without corrective lenses. If you wear glasses or contacts during the screening, a lens restriction will be placed on your driver鈥檚 license. If the lens restriction is placed on your driver鈥檚 license, you must always wear your glasses or contacts when operating a vehicle or you could be cited and lose your driving privileges for a period of time.

Written Knowledge Test鈥擨f you are a new applicant for an Idaho driver鈥檚 license or your Idaho driver鈥檚 license has been expired for more than one year, you will be tested on your knowledge of Idaho traffic laws, highway signs by shape and symbol, traffic signals, pavement marking, and equipment required on motor vehicles.

When can I renew my license?

If you are 21 or older, you may renew your Idaho driver鈥檚 license in person up to 364 days before the expiration date. A renewal is valid for either four years or eight years. If you are between the ages of 21 and 62, you may choose the eight-year renewal. Your vision will be checked, and if the examiner thinks it is necessary, a skills test, visual examination, and/or medical examination may be requested. If your driver鈥檚 license has been expired for one year or more, you will be required to take the written knowledge test and the skills test. If your CDL is expired for one year or more and you wish to retain CDL privileges, you will need to take the written knowledge test for class D, all written tests pertinent to the CDL, and a skills test in the class of vehicle that matches the class of CDL you are applying for.

What else should I know?

DONOR DESIGNATION鈥擨f you are 18 years of age or older, you may request to have the 鈥淒ONOR鈥 designation appear on your license or ID card. The designation identifies your wish to donate your organs and/or tissues upon your death to those waiting for transplants. If you are 16 or 17 years of age, you may have 鈥淒ONOR鈥 added with parental or legal guardian permission.

Organ donors are required to sign a Document of Gift before the license or ID card can display the donor designation. The Idaho Transportation Department will submit the Document of Gift to the donor registry.

Selective Service Registration鈥擣ederal law requires all males who are 18 to 25 years of age to register with the Selective Services System. Eligible males will have the opportunity to register when they apply for a driver鈥檚 license or ID card.

Additionally, the Selective Service System receives notification of all applicants who decline the opportunity to register.

Address Change:

Idaho law requires you to notify the DMV of any address change no more than 30 days after the move. Keeping your address current with the department helps assure that you will receive notifications to renew your driver's license by mail (if you qualify) and also receive any other important correspondence, such as notices of suspension. It also allows law enforcement personnel to notify you or your family if there is an emergency.
