That means you will have to go the registry, no matter what, which is located .... ?
However, you can renew your license before March 26 up to a year in advance of expiration and be good for another five years. You can renew online if your photo is less than 14 years old. I just renewed online, a couple months ahead of expiration, even though I've aged slightly since my 2008 photo ...
Oh, and I didn't have to do the eye test. I was kind of stressed about whether I should bring my 1.0, 1.5, or 2.5 magnifiers ...
Good grief :(
I recently renewed my license at an AAA office. I hope I can do that next time.
My passport expired long ago. Somewhere maybe I have a birth certificate.
Maybe it is in the safe deposit box that I have not visited for years.
