How to check my license/driving privilege status

 This page was updated for COVID-19.

Use MyDMV 

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

  • the current class and status of your driving privilege (for example valid, revoked, suspended)
  • the number of driver violation points on your driving record by purchasing your driving record
  • if your license, permit or non-driver ID card is valid, expired or due to be renewed
  • your document type (Enhanced, REAL ID, Standard)
  • 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.

To access MyDMV, you must have a New York State issued driver license, permit or non-driver ID. It must be your most recently issued document. 1

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).


I don't have a New York State license, permit or non-driver ID. How can I check my status?

Office procedures have changed due to COVID-19.

We recommend you conduct your DMV business at the office or by mail in the County where you are a resident.

You can order a driving record abstract by mail or at a DMV office. For instructions, visit the Get my driving record abstract web page.
