If a Massachusetts driver's license expires, it can still be renewed as long as it has not been expired for more than 4 years. Massachusetts driver's licenses are valid for 5 years and expire on a person's birthday. Licenses can be renewed online or in person.
A Massachusetts driver's license can be renewed up to 1 year before its expiration date. As of June 2014, the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles does not send out renewal notices, so it is important for people to pay attention to the expiration date. A renewal form must be completed in person or online to renew a license. Once completed, the person will receive a temporary license that is valid for 30 days, to give the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) time to process and mail the new license.Learn More
