To renew, you must apply in person at a DMV office, and you must:
You can renew your ID card up to fourteen months before the expiration date and one year after the expiration date (unless you qualify for a military exemption).
If your ID card is expired for more than one year, you cannot renew. You must meet the requirements and pay the fees for an original ID card.
DMV mails ID card renewal reminders two months before your ID card expires.
After you meet the requirements for renewal, you will be given an interim card to use until you receive your ID card in the mail.
Your ID card will be mailed to your address on file with DMV. It is important you give DMV the address where you receive your mail since ID cards are not forwarded by the post office. If you have a forwarding order or hold order on your address your ID card will be returned to DMV as undeliverable.
If you surrender a previous driver license, instruction permit or ID card, it will be hole-punched and returned to you. The hole-punched card is not valid by itself, but may be used as additional proof of identity with the interim card.
