Renew learner permit

Generally, you cannot renew a permit. If it expires, you must apply for a new learner permit at a DMV office and take your written test again.

There is 1 exception:
If you have 2 permits (for example a class M – Motorcycle and a class D - Operator). Your first permit will be valid for a maximum of 5 years. Your second will be valid for 1 year. You may be able to renew your 1-year permit for an additional year. To renew a 1-year permit you must submit your expired permit or 6 points of ID at a DMV office. You may be required to retake the written test, depending on the date you took your last written test.

Commercial Learner Permits (CLP) are valid for 1 year only. A CLP cannot be renewed. After your CLP expires, you will be required to apply for a new CLP. This may include retaking any required knowledge tests. For more information, see commercial driver licenses (CDL).
