Chapter 2, Section F:
Temporary Driving Permits

Revised July 18, 2008


The field offices may issue 10-day and 30-day temporary permits using the red and white MVD form 11067. In addition, the Drivers Section in Santa Fe issues the yellow MVD form 10111 as a 30-day permit for individuals who are out-of-state and need a temporary extension of their driver’s license.

Form 11067 10-Day Temporary Permits (66-5-8F)
A 10-day temporary driver's permit may be issued to a license applicant while the division is completing its investigation and determination of the applicant's right to receive a driver's license. The permit shall be in the applicant's possession while operating a motor vehicle, and shall be invalid when the applicant's license has been issued or refused. No fee.

The form 11067 10-day permit may also be used if for any reason the field office is unable to print the Temporary License for the customer. The customer can then leave and come back later, when we are able to print the Temporary License.

Form 11067 30-Day Temporary Permits
A 30-day temporary driver's permit may be issued to a license applicant pending completion of the DWI Prevention and Education Program, when an out-of-state license will expire before the scheduled DWI awareness class. No Fee.

Form 10111 30-Day Temporary Permits
The Drivers Section in Santa Fe issues the yellow MVD form 10111 as a 30-day permit for individuals who are out-of-state and need a temporary extension or replacement of a driver’s license that is expiring or has been lost, stolen or mutilated. This temporary permit is intended to give the applicant the additional time needed to return to New Mexico and renew or replace the license. Up to two additional 30-day permits may be issued (for a total of 90 days) if necessary. No fee. 

Historical note
The yellow form 10111 permit was also authorized in 2004 for use by field offices when the SSOLV (Social Security Verification System) returned a “no match” code for name or date of birth. The yellow temporary permit was intended to give the customer time to resolve the problem with the Social Security Administration prior to issuance of a regular license. However, the availability of the Social Security override function has eliminated the need for this use. The form 10111 30-Day Temporary Permit is therefore no longer available for use by field offices (PQU#8rev.).
