LICENSE RENEWAL BY MAIL FOR TEMPORARILY DISABLED

 

A new law allowing drivers’ licenses to be renewed by mail is not intended for general use by the public but rather by those who are not able to apply for a renewal in person, a City spokesperson explained today.

 

Act 48, signed into law by the Governor on April 25, 2002, allows everyone, not just those away from the State, to apply by mail to renew drivers’ licenses—but the statute is designed mainly for the temporarily disabled.

 

“This law may be used by the average motorist, but will benefit those who have difficulty applying in person due to a disability, such as a broken leg,” explained Carol Costa, City Customer Services Director.

 

Those interested in using the law must first request from the City’s Motor Vehicle, Licensing and Permits Division a packet containing different forms, a number of which must be filled out by a physician or notarized.  Renewals may be processed up to six months prior to the expiration of a license.
