‘Skip the Line’ program now available at driver’s license stations statewide

The Department of Public Safety’s new ‘Skip the Line’ program is now in effect at driver’s license stations across the state of Mississippi. 

Announced back in early September, the program allows you to make appointments online and moves renewal applications for firearm permits to a mail-in-only system. 

  • Online Appointment System: Customers can schedule an appointment at the location of their choice. All appointments will be given priority service over walk-in customers.
  • Skip the Line Cam: Customers can view the lines at all major Driver’s License stations prior to arriving by visiting https://www.driverservicebureau.dps.ms.gov/live-feeds.
  • Online/Mail-In Firearm Renewal: Effective immediately, all firearm permit renewal applications will be mail-in only. Firearm permit renewal applications are available online.

Additionally, you are no longer limited to visiting a station on the day of the week corresponding with the first letter of your last name — a system originally implemented in June as stations were beginning to reopen after the pandemic-induced shutdown.
