It can be a bit confusing when you’ve misplaced your driver’s license. Not the least of all because a “lost” driver’s license can mean a few different things. If you’ve lost your wallet or purse and suspect you’ll need to replace your driver’s license, here are some easy steps from MVD Express in Bozeman to get back on the road quickly!

Retrace Your Steps

First, take a moment to retrace your steps and see if you can remember where you may have left your driver’s license. This is especially important if it was recently lost or stolen. If you think it may have been stolen, contact the police immediately to report the theft. There is no need to be embarrassed about making an appointment at MVD Express in Bozeman while you search for your lost ID. If you discover your old one, you may simply cancel the appointment and save yourself some money!

Prepare Two Other Forms of ID

To replace your license, you’ll need to submit two additional acceptable documents to verify your identity in order to avoid being impersonated. This may appear inconvenient, but it is essential for security to prevent scammers from attempting to obtain a copy of your license without your consent.

Organize Safe and Legal Transportation While Your License is Missing

Once you replace your license, you’ll need to arrange for safe and legal transportation until you receive the new one in the mail. Depending on where you live and work, this may not be an issue. You may be able to get around by walking, biking, or taking public transportation. You might also ask a friend or family member if they can give you a ride. Just be sure to give them your new contact information in case they need to reach you while you’re on the road.
