Duplicate & Temporary Alaska Driver License

Help! I lost my license. What do I do?

To obtain a duplicate Alaska driver license, you must apply in person at your local DMV office and:

I’m out of state and can’t go to the DMV. What do I do?

If you are an Alaska resident, have lost your license, and are temporarily out of state, you may apply for a temporary license (form 481).  

Non-commercial temporary licenses are valid for no more than one year or until the expiration date of your non-commercial license.

Temporary licenses do not have a photo so be prepared for additional screening if using it as identification for travel.
