NEW MEXICO PROVISIONAL LICENSE (AGES 15½ TO 17) – REAL ID

If you have a valid New Mexico REAL ID Drivers Permit, you do not need to provide proof of identity, federal identification number, or New Mexico Residency. However, you will need to provide proof of a road test score, certificate of completion from a driving school, and a driving log.

TO GRADUATE FROM A PROVISIONAL LICENSE TO A NEW MEXICO DRIVERS LICENSE:

  • Hold Provisional License for 1 year or turn 18. (whichever comes first)
  • Not have been convicted of a traffic violation 90 days preceding application
  • Not have been found guilty or have an offense pending involving the use of alcohol or drugs during the provisional period
  • A parent or guardian with their identification will be required to sign for the driver if under age

Renew Expired New Mexico Driver’s License:

Driver’s licenses expire every 4 or 8 years. Depending on when you first applied or last renewed your driver’s license, is when you will need to renew yours. If your NM driver’s license has expired for 1 year or longer, you will need to bring the required paperwork for a first-time driver’s license, but you do not need to take a written or road test. If your NM driver’s license has expired for 5 years or longer, you will be required to re-take the written and road driver’s license tests if you’d like to renew. Anyone 79 years old or older is required by law to renew their driver’s license every year.
