What happens after I renew my driver license online?
A payment receipt will be sent to your email address after the payment is successful. A second email will be sent with a Temporary Driving Certificate, and the new physical license will be sent by mail.
I paid with my bank account. When will I see the money come out of my account?
ACH/eCheck payments take 3-5 business days to clear, and email confirmation is delivered after the transaction has finished fully processing. Your bank may show a temporary hold until the payment clears.
Note: If you pay with ACH, you will not receive your temporary license until the payment has completed processing.
How long does it take to get my license after I complete my online renewal?
Your Temporary Driving Certificate is valid for 60 days. The NCDMV will mail out your license directly. Since they unfortunately do not provide us with shipping details, please contact them at 919.861.3555 if you have not received your driver license within 20 business days after renewing online.
Does my Temporary Driving Certificate have a photo?
No, the Temporary Driving Certificate does not have include photo, and it cannot be used as a valid form of photo identification.
I lost my Temporary Driving Certificate. Can I reprint it?
Yes, you can reprint your Temporary Driving Certificate from your email inbox, or if you created a myNCDMV account, you can print it from the Official Documents section of your profile.
Can I still drive with my expired license?
No, your expired license is not valid to operate a motor vehicle. You must print your Temporary Driving Certificate and keep it with you while driving. If your Temporary Driving Certificate expires before you receive your driver's license, contact the NCDMV at 919.715.7000 or 919.861.3555 for further assistance.
