Licenses must be renewed by appointment by Dec. 31.

JSSP Government Events

The North Dakota Department of Transportation said driver's licenses that expired after March 1, 2020, are due for renewal by Dec. 31, 2020.

The Dec. 31 deadline aligns with Gov. Doug Burgum’s executive order which extended certain expiration dates. If your license is not renewed by this date it will be considered invalid.

Robin Rehborg, NDDOT deputy director for driver safety, said there are more than 12,000 driver's licenses that need to be renewed by the Dec. 31 deadline. People who need to renew their license should schedule their appointment as soon as possible.

The NDDOT continues to provide driver's license services by appointment only. No walk-in services are available at this time.

Customers need to schedule an appointment ahead of time by visiting our website at to complete an online request or by calling 1-855-633-6835.


For safety reasons, only the customer scheduled for the appointment may enter the building. Customers are required to participate in a temperature check and health screening at the time of their scheduled appointment. Masks are required for the safety of the customer and the employees.

Many driver's license services such as change of address, renewals, replacements and more are available online.

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration extended the REAL ID deadline to October 2021. Only customers renewing a North Dakota driver license at this time will be able to obtain a REAL ID during their scheduled appointment.
