DPS Warns Texas Drivers of Private Non-Governmental Websites


AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is reminding Texans that there are only two official websites for conducting Texas driver license/identification card/driver record transactions: and To prevent fraudulent use of your personal information and to avoid paying unnecessary fees, only conduct transactions on these two websites.


While many unofficial websites actually include a disclaimer that they are not in fact an official government website, these private non-governmental sites can still be extremely deceptive to customers and provide inaccurate information and charge unnecessary fees. 


Customers seeking to conduct online driver license/identification (ID) card/driver record transactions are advised to type or directly into the URL address line to ensure they are visiting an official website (using a search engine can easily lead customers to a private non-governmental website).


The following fees listed at are the only fees a customer should be charged; any other fee amount would be an indication of an unauthorized website:


·       Renewal of driver license (with or without changing address): $25

·       Renewal of ID (with or without changing address): $16

·       Renewal of driver license with motorcycle (with or without changing address): $33

·       Change of address only for driver license or ID: $11


If a customer believes they have encountered a fraudulent website, they should contact the Texas Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-621-0508.
