Replacing your driver's license in Maine

To drive legally in the state of Maine, you need to own a valid drivers license. If your drivers license was recently damaged, lost or stolen due to an unfortunate event, you will need to seek a replacement Maine driver license immediately. Driving without a license is a punishable offense in Maine. Luckily, you can replace a drivers license at the {DMV-C} in person for a fee, and get back out on the road again. However, if you are currently traveling out-of-state, obtaining a replacement Maine drivers license at the {DMV-C} may not be the most convenient option. Depending on how you choose to get a drivers license replacement in Maine, you may have to wait for a new card. Whether you are traveling, or waiting for a replacement license to arrive at home, it's wise to have a photocopy of your valid license handy, in case of emergency. If you do not have copy of your drivers license, you can use a US passport as proof of identity in the meantime.

Don't risk getting caught driving without a license. Get your Road Advisors Guide today and find out all the details on how to replace your driver license and get back behind the wheel in no time.

Replace License

If you have a lost drivers license or a stolen drivers license and are unable to retrieve it, then a visit to a Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles office may be in order. The state of Maine also provides two other options for drivers license replacement: online and by mail.

Report a Stolen Drivers License

Before visiting your local BMV office, stop by your nearest police station to file a report about your lost drivers license or stolen drivers license. By filing this crucial report, you will reduce the chances of identity fraud, or fraudulent activity on your license to drive. Make sure to bring a copy with you to the BMV.

Replace a Drivers License in Person

The Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles makes it a requirement to present two forms of identification when replacing your driver's license at one of their branches. You can use the list below as a guideline of acceptable documents:

  • Your military dependent ID card
  • Your divorce decree
  • Your Unemployment card
  • Your Social Security card
  • Your marriage certificate
  • Your citizenship papers
  • Your adoption papers
  • Your passport
  • Your certified school record or transcriptv
  • Your driver's license
  • A court order
  • A concealed weapons permit

One of your documents must include your date of birth, while another must have your signature on it. In addition to these items, you will also be asked to complete a Request for Duplicate Motor Vehicle Operator's License form and pay any necessary fees.

Other Required Documents

Depending on whether or not the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles already has your proof of legal status in the country and proof of residency on file, a vehicle driver is required to present additional documents that address the aforementioned proofs of identification.

Mobile Locations

For your convenience, Maine is also one of few states that currently has Motor Vehicle Mobile Unit Locations available. These mobile spots are open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday — with the exception of holidays.

Replace a Drivers License Online

Some car owners may have the option to replace DMV drivers licenses online - and many will find it to be the most convenient. However, if you hold a commercial driver's license, you will not be able to take advantage of this service. Additionally, you will not be deemed eligible to replace your license online if any of the following applies to you:

  • You need to complete a vision screening.
  • Your license is currently revoked or suspended.
  • Your name or address is different since the last time you renewed your license.
  • You currently have a medical condition that may affect your driving abilities.
  • You hold a commercial driver's license.
  • You need to provide proof of Maine residency.
  • You have a license from a different jurisdiction.
  • You would like to make changes to your weight or hair color.

In essence, if you need to make some type of change to your Maine drivers license, you will be unable to utilize the Rapid Renewal service online. However, if no modifications are necessary, then you can begin the drivers license replacement process right away. The Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles allows drivers to get their duplicate license online at any time of day or night.

To get started, visit the Rapid Renewal webpage and make sure to have a major credit card, your Social Security number and a printer close by. All of these will be required in order to properly complete the transaction.

Replace a Drivers License by Mail

For a driver to receive a duplicate license by mail, he or she needs to send payment for a replacement fee of $5, along with a letter to the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles that includes the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your date of birth
  • Your residential address
  • A description about how your license was lost or stolen

The letter must be sent to this address:

Bureau of Motor Vehicles
