#Howto Order A Duplicate Drivers License

A valid drivers license or other government issued identification is one of the only items you must bring to your real estate closing. Massachusetts does not provide notice to its residents when its time to renew.

If you have a closing coming up, check your wallet or purse to make sure your license is valid. Your closing will not happen if you can’t produce a valid government issued form of identification.

If you have recently purchased a new home, it is well worth the $25.00 expense to order a duplicate drivers license with your new address. Especially if you have recently renewed your drivers license. Otherwise, you will walk around with that old address on your license for as long as 4-5 years!

The expense will pay for itself when the local police give you a warning for a moving violation when a non-resident would have received a ticket! That is money in your pocket!

Who is going to believe you somewhere if the address isn’t on your license?
