How much does it cost to replace a lost drivers license?

Each state adheres to different requirements and fees for replacing a lost drivers license. You'll have to apply through your state's motor vehicle agency. Generally the process is simple, requiring nothing more than visiting a DMV office, showing proof of identification and paying a small fee (see grid). 

If you lose your license while out of state, call your DMV office and ask how to apply for a duplicate driver license. Most offices will allow you to apply for a new license via the mail, or, in some instances, online.
