The waiver that was ordered by Governor Greg Abbott in March applied to driver licenses, commercial driver licenses, commercial learner permits, identification cards and election identification certificates that expired on or after March 13, 2020.

To manage the flow of renewals these locations have extended hours. Some Texas drivers may be eligible to renew online.

DPS launched a new appointment solution when driver license offices reopened in May, and all services are now conducted by appointment only. Customers who need to renew are urged to make an appointment . There are a limited number of same-day appointments that will be available at each office. These appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
