BATON ROUGE, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NIC Louisiana and the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) are excited to announce citizens needing replacement driver’s license or identification card credentials can now make their requests online 24/7. The Duplicate Credential Request application is offered through the OMV website at www.expresslane.org.
The service is ideal for those whose credentials have been lost, misplaced or become illegible. Before the implementation of this online service, all requests for duplicates had to be completed at an OMV office location. Now, the duplicate credential request can be completed online, and the new credential will be mailed to the customer.
To request a duplicate credential, the citizen must be in good standing with the OMV and will need to provide the following information:
- Date of birth
- Driver’s license number, identification card number or last four of their social security number
- A valid credit card backed by Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express
“This service will allow us to issue duplicate licenses safely and efficiently and hopefully save everyone a trip to our offices,” said Commissioner Karen St. Germain. “Our goal is to always provide unparalleled, innovative services to our customers by offering valuable online options such as this.”
Other online services found at www.expresslane.org include vehicle registration renewal, duplicate registration request, official driving record request, driver’s license and ID card renewals, and a Real ID Checklist.
“The health and safety of Louisiana residents is of the utmost importance to the OMV, and NIC Louisiana is proud to have helped develop yet another digital solution aimed at preserving just that,” said Kellie Benoit, NIC Louisiana General Manager. “This new service aligns with NIC’s mission to make citizen-government interaction more accessible to everyone through the use of innovative technology.”
