Your driver’s license is valid only for a certain length of time after it is issued. In order to ensure accurate DMV records, you are required to renew your driver’s license every several years. Sometimes you can renew online or by mail, but at certain intervals you must go to a DMV to renew in order to have your photo id updated.  If you are not certain whether your license is valid, check your driving record online or at your local DMV office.
