How to transfer
You can pay by cash, check, money order, credit card, and debit card. Since payment methods vary by location, check what’s accepted at the site you will be visiting.
If your license has been expired more than 1 year, a full test (written and road) and an eye test will be required.
To transfer your license, you must have a valid immigration status for at least 12 months. If your legal immigration status is less than 12 months, you are not eligible to obtain a Massachusetts driver's license.
