After you apply for your duplicate license, you'll receive a Temporary Driving Certificate (TDC) immediately. The TDC is valid for 20 days, and you should receive your permanent driver license by mail within 20 days. The NC DMV asserts most drivers receive their permanent licenses within 10 days.
Likewise, how long does it take to get a license plate in the mail?
In approximately 10 days or less after your order is processed, you will receive new documents that show your current plate number and your new plate combination. Allow at least six weeks for the custom plates to arrive. Your new registration documents will be mailed separately from your new custom plates.
How long do you have to renew your driver's license after it expires?
Your California driver's license expires every 5 years on your birthday. The CA Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will mail you a renewal notice about 2 months before the expiration date. Depending on your driver's license status (valid, expired, suspended, or lost/damaged), you can renew either: Online.
Can I retake my DMV photo?
With renewal by mail, you can go as long as a dozen years without having a new driver's license picture. You can still get a new one, the DMV says. Just call for an appointment, shell out $12, and have your picture retaken for a new driver's license. (It will be labeled "duplicate.")
