AUDIO: Idaho Transportation Dept encourages residents to utilize online resource

Idaho Transportation Department data shows an estimated Department of Motor Vehicle service backlog of 40,000 driver’s license/ID card customers, 50,000 vehicle registrations, and 10,000 vehicle titles statewide as a result of office closures due to the coronavirus pandemic.

ITD DMV Administrator Alberto Gonzalez encourages Idahoans to renew their license and/or vehicle registration online, and help reduce wait times by allowing room at county DMV offices for customers who cannot complete services online.


Expanded online services include: Renewing a license/ID; purchasing a replacement license/ID; purchasing a driving record; renewing vehicle registration; and ordering personalized plates.

Idaho licenses and registrations expiring between March 1 and May 31 now have until June 30, 2020 to renew. The federal deadline for the Star Card-Idaho’s REAL ID has also been extended a full year to October 1, 2021.
