REPLACement DRIVER’S LICENSE

REPLACING YOUR NON-COMMERCIAL DRIVER’S LICENSE

A Pennsylvania duplicate Non-Commercial Driver's License is issued when the current product is lost, stolen, mutilated, or never received.

If PennDOT has your photo and signature on file, you can apply for a duplicate non-commercial license online. When your application is complete, you will be able to print off a temporary driver's license good for 15 days while your duplicate is processed and mailed.

*If you have not reconciled an outstanding sanction(s) in another state(s), PennDOT is unable to issue you any driver’s license product. For more information, please see the National Driver Register Fact Sheet (PDF).

Mail-in Process:

Step 1: 

Complete Form DL-80 (PDF), "Non-Commercial Driver's License Application to Change/Correct/Replace".

Step 2: 

Make a check or money order payable to PennDOT for the appropriate fee.

Step 3: 

Mail application and check or money order to: PennDOT, P.O. Box 68272, Harrisburg, PA 17106-8272.

Step 4: 

If your picture is on file, you will receive a duplicate Non-Commercial Driver’s License with your current picture. If no picture is on file, a camera card will be mailed to the address on file with PennDOT. If you receive a camera card, you must appear at a photo center to obtain a photo for a Non-Commercial Driver's License. PennDOT uses state-of-the-art facial recognition technology when an individual has their photo taken for their driver's license/identification card renewal.

Step 5: 

You may go to an Online Messenger Service or Driver License Center and apply for a duplicate Non-Commercial Driver’s license by using the DL-80 (PDF) form. The messenger service can issue the customer an interim license that is valid for 15 days. This will allow you to have a valid product in your possession while PennDOT processes the duplicate request.

Note: Messenger service fees may apply for these services.
