Expired Driver's License

Is an expired California driver's license acceptable identification for notary?

Great question, and one we run into all of the time! An expired driver's license is NOT acceptable for identification on a notary transaction. An expired license with the DMV issued extension, or renewal receipt also are NOT valid for use in notarizing a document. Only the original, current, unexpired driver's license, is valid in California.

Other states' requirements may vary, so please check with the regulating agency in your state for accurate information.
