Request replacement driver's license

Service Description

If your driver's license has been lost (stolen, illegible, or lost), you may be issued a replacement driver's license upon request, provided you do not relinquish your license.

If your name has changed, you do not have to get a new driver's license. However, especially when driving abroad, it may be useful to be in possession of an EU card driver's license with current information. If you wish to change your name on your driver's license, a new card driver's license will be issued upon request.
