SALT LAKE CITY - Online driver license renewal will be a thing of the past at the beginning of the new year.
The passage of Senate Bill 40 during the 2009 legislative session has changed the process to obtain or renew a Utah driver license of identification card.
All applicants applying for or renewing a Utah driver license or ID card will be required to provide documentation for verification.
The new law clarifies acceptable documentation for proof of:
- U.S. Citizenship or legal/lawful presence in the United States
- Social Security number, ineligibility to obtain a Social Security number of proof of the Individual Taxpayer Identification number (ITIN)
- Utah residency
A "regular" driver license , ID card or Commercial Driver License (CDL) will be issued to U.S. Citizens, Legal Permanent Residents or Nationals who provide the proper documentation.
A "limited-term" driver license, ID card or CDL will be issued to those who can provide proof of legal/lawful presence in the U.S.
Those who do not qualify for a "regular" or "limited-term" driver license may be eligible for a Utah Driver Privilege Card as long as the proper documentation is provided.
All other licensing requirements and fees remain the same.
