This service may be used to request a duplicate Operator’s license from
the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles. Requests for other duplicate
credentials, such as a Commercial Driver’s License, must be done at the
RI DMV. You will be required to provide updated information regarding
your organ donor and voter registration status.
We will use the photo and signature from your previous license. You do not need to appear at the DMV to complete this transaction.
Your new license will be mailed to the mailing address on file with the
DMV, and you will have an opportunity to verify this address before
completing your request. If an address change is necessary, you may
change it online at
or by completing a
Change of Address form
and mailing it to the Cranston DMV.
Upon completion of your duplicate license request, you will be able to
print a receipt or have it e-mailed to you. This receipt will be
accepted for state and local law enforcement purposes. If you do not
have a printer or e-mail address, you may request a duplicate of your
license, but no receipt will be available indicating your request.
Your duplicate license request will be processed within three business
days. You will receive your new license in up to 60 days.
