Renew Your Photo ID

Note: You can renew a photo ID online or by going to a local On-Line Messenger Service to have one processed.

Step 1:

If you have not received the computer generated renewal application and it will expire in six months or less, you can obtain Form DL-54B (PDF).

Step 2:

You must complete the application and mail it in to the address listed on the form with a check or money order payable to PennDOT for the appropriate fee.

Step 3:

A camera card will be mailed, and you should receive it within seven to ten working days after form is processed.

Step 4:

Once you receive your camera card, take it along with appropriate identification to any Photo Center to receive new digitized driver's license. You may be asked to verify the last four digits of your social security number.

PennDOT uses state-of-the-art facial recognition technology when an individual has their photo taken for their driver's license/identification card renewal. 

Customer demand for photo services is greatest the first and last 2 days of each month. Customer wait times are shorter on all other days. 

Take your camera card and appropriate identification to a Photo Center to receive your new digitized Photo ID.
