As with many services offered by Commonwealth departments, through PennDOT’s website – www.dmv.pa.gov – customers can obtain a variety of driver and vehicle products and services, including all forms, driver training publications and materials.
Online services for drivers and vehicles are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and include renewing non-commercial driver’s licenses, photo IDs and vehicle registration; driver history services; address changes; driver’s license and vehicle registration restoration letters; ability to pay for driver’s license or vehicle insurance restoration costs; duplicate driver’s license and photo ID; and scheduling driving tests. Additionally, customers can upload their emergency contact information, allowing law enforcement to quickly reach someone who will speak for the individual if they are unable to speak for themselves. The information provided is stored in a secure database accessible only to law enforcement. There are no additional charges for using the online services.
“PennDOT is proud to provide our customers with comprehensive online services, such as driver’s license and vehicle renewals, address changes, and more,” said PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian. “However, it is important that customers ensure they are on the official PennDOT website before completing a transaction.”

Many third-party sites charge additional fees to transact – there are no additional service or convenience fees for transacting online on PennDOT’s website.
There are a few simple tips to help customers ensure they visit the official PennDOT website:

- PennDOT does not charge any additional service or transaction fees to transact online. If you are charged additional fees, you are not on the PennDOT website.
