To Change Your Driver License Number on the Replacement License
If your New Mexico driver license is lost or stolen, and you want your replacement license to have a different driver license number, you must notify the police department and file a report. Then, bring the following to a MVD Field Office:
- A copy of the Police Report or the police officer’s business card with your report case number.
- A signed statement saying that you want MVD to issue you a new driver license number because your old license was lost or stolen.
At MVD, you will sign a form surrendering your old driver license number, and the Field Office clerk will submit your information for verification. You should be able to pick up your temporary replacement driver license with a new license number within 48 hours. Your regular replacement license will be mailed to you.
