The Details

What you need

Your Massachusetts ID is valid for 5 years and expires on your birthday, but you can renew it up to 1 year before it expires.

A new photo is required if your current photo is 14 or more years old or was taken before your 21st birthday. If a new photo is required, you must visit an RMV Service Center for the renewal.

Turning 21 soon? You may want to wait to renew until your birthday. See the More info section below.

However, if you renew your ID on or after your 21st birthday, you will receive a standard horizontal ID without "Under 21" printed on it.
