The LA Wallet app, Louisiana’s digital driver’s license, now allows you to renew your driver’s license in the app itself and have an updated digital result in just 24 hours.
The app was designed by Envoc and President Calvin Fabre says the next time you log into the app you’ll notice a new button that says “check for renewal” that checks your renewal eligibility. “If it is then you can go ahead, go through the process and renew your license and we will get a printed hard copy sent to your address. He adds you do need to make sure your app is up to date first.
Fabre says if you renew through the app you’ll have your up to date license available for use at participating vendors in less than a day. “The mailing of the physical may come a few days later whenever the state can get to it, but then you are able to drive legally with this renewed LA Wallet license,” says Fabre. App users will not be charged any additional fees that wouldn’t be charged to those using the standard online renewal process.
OMV offices are closed as long as the stay at home order is in effect so Fabre says now is a good time to try the app, especially considering it is now free.
“It went free and we have almost a half a million citizens using it right now,” says Fabre.
