25,0000 Wisconsin drivers eligible for online license renewal

The state transportation department estimates that nearly 250,000 Wisconsin drivers are eligible to renew their license online this year, allowing them to avoid the line at the DMV.

The Department of Transportation’s Division of Motor Vehicles earlier this month launched new programs aimed at reducing in-person visits to state motor vehicle offices during the COVID-19 outbreak. Under one program, drivers between the age of 18 and 64 may be eligible to renew their license online at wisconsindmv.gov/renewDL.
