OLYMPIA—The Department of Licensing introduced a fast, easy way to manage your driver license and all of your vehicle, trailer and boat licenses in one secure online service called License Express.

This new service allows people to take care of all of the most common DOL license transactions like renewals and address changes. It also makes it easy to take care of many less common tasks like ordering a duplicate driver license or ID card, signing up for email renewal reminders, ordering copies of your driving record and report the sale of vehicles or boats.

It’s no secret our customers typically dread a trip to a local driver licensing office to wait for service,” Licensing Director Alan Haight said. “License Express is like having a DOL office at home.”

License Express ties together DOL’s most popular online services that, individually, have been used more than 2.5 million times by customers wanting to skip a trip to an office. DOL plans to keep improving this new service over time and adding more features to make it even more useful and save DOL customers more time.

License Express takes advantage of a highly secure login process through the state’s Secure Access Washington service to safeguard personal information.

Save a stamp

As the price of stamps keeps going up, DOL’s hardworking Graphic Communications Unit came up with a clever way to remind customers that they can avoid the price of a stamp by going online to complete their license renewal transaction.

DOL received permission from the United States Postal Service to place the text “Save a stamp. Renew online at” in the stamp area on the pre-printed envelopes we insert in renewal notices.

Just about all vehicle, boat and business license renewals can be processed quickly and easily online. And many driver license renewals can be done online, too.

Please visit our website for more information about  renewing your licenses online. We will begin testing these new envelopes soon.
