  3. What do I do if I lose my license or it gets wet and I need to print another one?
    • After you complete the license transaction process, you will automatically receive (via email) a purchase receipt and a URL address that keeps a printable copy of your license. If you did not keep this URL, you will need to purchase a duplicate copy which is one of the options on the first page.
