You can stop by a local office, phone in your inquiry or check online from your home computer. A variety of information is available, from when your new license was mailed to any fees required to renew or reinstate your license.

Eligibility Tool

Texas has set up an online eligibility database on the Department of Public Safety’s website. To gain access, you must provide the last four digits of your Social Security number, driver’s license number, and date of birth in the MM/DD/YY format. A variety of things can be checked with the online system. For example, if your license was suspended, you can log into the system and find out if you’re eligible to reinstate it. The system will disclose any reinstatement requirements, such as compliance documents you must submit along with reinstatement fees.
