We mail your license, learner permit or non-driver ID to the address we have our records.
Allow 2 weeks to receive the document.
If your document is not delivered two weeks after the date the document was processed, you can send a question to us online, call the DMV or visit your local DMV office.
How long does it take to receive license?
It takes two to three weeks for your actual driver’s license to arrive in the mail. If you are under 18 and getting your first driver’s license, you must use the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) system to get your license. Depending on your age and your driving experience, this process could take a few years.

How do you get your driver’s license in California?
STEP 3: Get Your California Learners Permit at the DMV
- Take the DMV Form DL 44, our certificate of completion (Form OL 237), and proof that you have completed driver training or are enrolled in a driver training program, to the DMV.
- Pass a written traffic law and sign test.
- Pass a vision exam.
- Pay the fee.
Do you get your license the same day you pass the test?
Your driving test pass certificate. After your test, your examiner will give you your pass certificate. You can use this as evidence that you have passed until you get your photocard driving licence, but you actually don’t even need to carry it with you.
Is there a grace period for expired drivers license in California?
To be eligible to renew your license, it must expire within 60 days or already be expired – the California DMV will mail you a renewal notice 2 months before the expiration. You can renew your license online even if it is expired.
