Replace License

There's no denying that sometimes unfortunate incidents happen in life, including the mishap of a lost or stolen drivers licens. Either way, it is up to you to apply for a duplicate drivers license with the DOT, and you can do so for a number of different reasons.

The most common instances in which drivers license replacements are required include if your drivers license has been lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed. In the event you are dealing with one of these problems, you can follow any of the below methods in order to get your driving documents replaced: in person, by mail or by online messenger service.

Report a Stolen Drivers License

If your drivers license has been stolen in the state of Pennsylvania, consider reporting it to your nearest police department. Local law enforcement can help you keep your identity safe and your important personal information out of the wrong hands. All you need to do is visit your local police office and describe your situation to an officer.

Replace a Drivers License in Person

The process of replacing drivers license documents in person is very simple. All you need to do is visit a local driver license center with the following:

Replace a Drivers License by Mail

To replace drivers license documents by mail, the first thing you will be required to do is complete a Non-Commercial Driver's License Application to Change/Correct/Replace. Once you have this PA duplicate drivers license application in hand, make sure to write a money order or check payable to PennDOT with the appropriate replacement fee.

All you will need to do next is mail the aforementioned items to the following address:

P.O. Box 68272
Harrisburg, PA 17106-8272

As long as you have your photo on file at the DOT office, your transaction will be complete. If, however, you do not have your photo on file, you will have to pay a visit to your local Photo Center with the camera card you receive in the mail.

Replace a Drivers License by Online Messenger Service

Motorists that need to get Pennsylvania drivers license replacements have the option of doing business with an Online Messenger Service, which will give them temporary drivers licenses that last for a period of 15 days. PennDOT will then issue you official driving licenses for your use.

Replace a Commercial Drivers License

The process a commercial driver must complete in Pennsylvania for a duplicate drivers license is similar to that of non-commercial drivers. By following the simple steps below, you will be well on your way to receiving a drivers license replacement:

As previously mentioned, if the PennDOT has your picture on file, you will receive a duplicate drivers license in the mail with your current photo. However, if you do not have a picture in the system, you will be required to visit a Photo Center with the camera card you receive in the mail.

Keep in mind that if you currently have any outstanding sanctions from a different state, you will be unable to replace drivers license documents until all pending matters are settled.
