1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Online application assistance services in Wisconsin can facilitate the processes involved in many DMV related services by providing invaluable information and step-by-step instruction on how best to proceed. Whether you are looking to renew, replace or get a new WI drivers license or ID card, online application assistance services can help with these and many more. Other benefits include one-click access to an entire inventory of official Wisconsin forms and publications, as well as other useful Wisconsin resources.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a DMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DMV office. Varying DMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DMV allows you to make a personal appointment.
