Check my license/driving privilege status

How can I check the status of my New York State driver license or driving privilege?

Sign up for MyDMV and use the "My License, Permit or ID" service.  You can check

  • the current status of your driving privilege (for example valid, revoked, suspended)
  • the number of driver violation points on your driving record
  • if your license, permit or non-driver ID card is valid, expired or due to be renewed
  • your address on DMV records, and change it, if necessary
  • your CDL medical certification status
  • the mailing status of a document you recently ordered

You can also renew or order a replacement document.

Go to MyDMV.


Is My License an official record?

No. The My License service is not an official (certified) copy of your driving record. If you need a certified copy of your driving record, see Get my own driving record (abstract).
