Obtaining a New York State Driver’s License or a Non-Driver ID Card
To obtain, renew, or replace a driver’s license or a Non-Driver Photo ID Card, you must complete an MV-44 form. Get this form at http://dmv.ny.gov/forms/mv44.pdf or at any Motor Vehicle office. You can also apply online.
If your driver license or your learner permit is expired for two years or more, you cannot renew your driver license. You must apply for an original license. You must pass the vision test, the written test, and the road test, and complete a pre-licensing course.
