The Department of Motor Vehicles does allow license renewals online as of 2015. The process and availability can vary state to state and have various requirements to be able to use the online process.
Drivers that are interested in renewing their licenses online need to check their local Department of Motor Vehicles website to verify that they can use this process and register for an online account in many cases. Some states allow someone to renew 1 to 2 years before their expiration date. Users of the online service will also need a method of payment for the renewal fees associated with a new license just as if they had gone into the local location to complete the process.
