BATON ROUGE, La. (WDSU) — The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) announced Thursday that people needing replacement driver’s license or identification card credentials can now make their requests online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Duplicate Credential Request application is offered through the OMV website at

The service is ideal for those whose credentials have been lost, misplaced or become illegible, according to the OMV.

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 directly to the customer, according to a news release issued by the OMV.

To request a duplicate credential, the driver 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 digits of their Social Security number
  • A valid credit card backed by Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express

“This new service will allow us to issue duplicate licenses safely and efficiently during this public health emergency and beyond,” said Commissioner Karen St. Germain in an issued news release. “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 include vehicle registration renewal, duplicate registration request, official driving record request, driver’s license and ID card renewals and a Real ID checklist.
