How do I apply for a Texas duplicate license to replace a stolen drivers license or lost license? Texas

A lost drivers license is definitely an inconvenience, but fortunately getting a replacement drivers license isn’t too much of a hassle.

Just head to your nearest Texas DPS location (yes, you must do it in person) and bring:

  • A completed Texas Driver License and Identification Renewal/Duplicate Application. You can save yourself some time by downloading this from the TX DPS Web site.
  • Proof of identify.*
  • Proof of your Social Security number.*
  • The $10 duplicate license fee.
* You can use the same proofs you used when you originally applied for your drivers license.

Replacing a Stolen Drivers License

If you suspect or know for sure your TX driver license was stolen, you’ll follow the same steps as listed above for replacing a lost license but you’ll also report the stolen license to the police.

You must do this not only to have on file that there’s someone out there who might try to use your license, but also so that the TX DPS can give you a new drivers license number and make your old number invalid – which makes it even more difficult for someone to use your old license.
