                        Make Your Trip to the DPS Less Painful

                        A trip to the DPS can feel stressful without planning ahead. So, before you run out the door. We’ve gathered a few tips to make your trip to the Department of Public Safety a little less agonizing.

                        Just Don’t Go - Do it Online

                        Did you know the Texas DPS offers certain services online? You can:

                        • Renew an expired drivers license or identification card.
                        • Replace a lost or stolen drivers license or identification card.
                        • Change your address on your drivers license or identification card.

                        If you need one of these services, try doing it online first. Go HERE.


                        Cut in Line, Legally

                        At certain DPS locations, you can electronically get in line through a service called Get In Line Online. GILO allows you to:

                        • Apply for a first-time drivers license, learners permit, or ID card.
                        • Take the written test or computer test (if you’re worried about the test, try a practice test).
                        • Renew an expired drivers license or identification card.
                        • Replace a lost or stolen drivers license or identification card.
                        • Change your address on your drivers license or identification card.

                        Just schedule an appointment online. The DPS will send you an SMS text notification of your appointment time. Go to work, attend a class, run errands, or watch a movie until your approved appointment time.

                        Get In Line Online isn’t offered everywhere. Learn if your DPS location offers it HERE.

                        Avoid the Rush

                        If online help isn’t available for your DPS office or you have a complicated transaction, your best option is to avoid certain times and days:

                        • Avoid Mondays and Fridays. In general, Mondays and Fridays tend to be busier than other days.
                        • Avoid lunchtime. A lot of optimistic folks brave the DPS at lunch thinking they’ll get through the line quickly. They usually don’t.
                        • Avoid the day before or after a holiday. The DPS isn’t open on holidays. All those customers not getting serviced spill over to other days.
