    I was cleaning out my wallet last night and noticed that my license expires in a few months......2-23-16.

    It took awhile to get it and I don't want to see it expire while the paperwork is sitting on someones desk and then me having to start all over again.

    To be safe how far in advance should you send in the paperwork for renewal ?......I'm guessing there is a renewal form available somewhere and new photos will be required also ?

    I think you can renew up to 90 days before it expires, they sent me a letter in the mail around that time. You can do it all online at the OSBI website. Pay with credit card and upload a photo from your phone. I did it a couple months ago. Took about 10 mins to fill out the forms online, and about 35 days for the new license to arrive in my mailbox.

    ETA: I was right. From their website.

    90 days prior, you have a 30 day grace period as well, just like your car tag.You wont have to start all over again unless you let it expire for more than 3 years. At that point, you'd start all over.

    A word of caution on renewal, especially with a credit card...

    My wife submitted the paperwork to renewed hers.
    We started the process 90 days from expiration.
    during the process, her CC was reissued due to something at the CC company (possible hacking?)
    By the time the OSBI ran the CC info supplied, the card was no longer "valid" and the paperwork was returned to us.
    This was about 20 days before expiration.
    There was no way the CC company could allow OSBI to process on old number
    Process had to be started over.

    I think she finally got the new card 29 days after expiration of the old one.

    Never again with a CC if I can avoid it.

    Mine was set to expire at the end of Dec. I got notice from OSBI about a week ago and sent in the renewal a few days ago. Waiting for it to come back.
