New Mexico Active-Duty Military Members May Be Exempt From Licensing Requirements

If you’re an active-duty military member stationed abroad, the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division takes one burden from you. This is awesome for anyone who can’t easily renew their license back home in New Mexico, because they are overseas. New Mexico allows your expired license to be considered valid for a month after you return home. You won’t have to renew your licence until the 31st day after your return to New Mexico. New Mexico also lets it work in reverse too. Active-duty military members stationed in New Mexico can keep their own licence from their home state.

If you return home to New Mexico after a deployment, you should also take proof of your deployment with you when you get your registration renewed. New Mexico MVD is known to regularly waive late fees for active-duty military members just back from deployment. On the flip side, if you are driving a registered out of state vehicle and stationed in New Mexico, New Mexico will let you keep your home state’s registration. You can switch the registration and title over to New Mexico if you want to, but they don’t make you.

Cannon Air Force Base and Kirtland Air Force Base are both just a few hours south of Angel Fire. If you are stationed there, we hope you’ll swing up to Angel Fire and take a look. This might be just the place to settle after you’re finally discharged.
