Beaumont driver license office reopens after Hurricane Harvey

Texas Headlines

The Beaumont driver license reopened Monday morning after being closed for more than two weeks because of Hurricane Harvey, the Texas Department of Public Safety announced in a news release.

There is no confirmed date as to when the Port Arthur and Orange offices, which also closed Aug. 25, will reopen.

DPS will provide a no-cost replacement driver license or identification card for residents in the impacted counties, provided they had previously been issued a Texas driver license or identification card, the news release said.

Replacement IDs normally cost $11, but DPS is encouraging customers living in Harvey's affected counties to bring whatever identity and residency documentation they possess.

Eligible card holders will need to visit a driver license office in person to obtain a free Texas driver license or identification card replacement.

The eligibility requirements for phone renewal and online renewal are the same. The fee is the same for online, in-person and telephone renewals. Note: Customers may renew their Driver License/Texas ID card one year early prior to their expiration date, which allows them to choose a convenient time that fits their schedule.
