Pennsylvania DOT Services

The Department of Transportation is tasked with handling motor vehicle and licensing services in the state of Pennsylvania. While you can go to one of the offices located around the state, residents conduct a lot of their business online. That way, they can skip the lines. Plus, the online service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That means you can complete your desired tasks after work or even in the middle of the night.

Online Driver License Services

There are lots of available driver license services for people who live in Pennsylvania. You can use the online driver license service to:

  • Renew a driver’s license
  • Renew a photo ID
  • Change your address
  • Purchase a driver history
  • Request a license restoration
  • Pay a restoration fee
  • Get a duplicate of your license or ID

It’s important to note that you cannot renew your license online if you have an out-of-state address listed on your current license or if your license doesn’t have a photo.

New Pennsylvania Residents

If you are new to Pennsylvania, you have 60 days to apply for your license after establishing residency. You will also have to turn over your current license. In addition, you will be required to take a vision-screening test in order to get your license. Visit a location near you to take care of these duties and get your license.

Online Vehicle Services

The Department of Transportation also offers a variety of vehicle services online. Use the online vehicle services to:

  • Renew your registration
  • Change your address
  • Update your emergency contact information
