Cancellation or Voluntary Surrender of License
The Secretary of State can cancel a driver license if it has been unlawfully or erroneously issued, or if the application for the license contains untrue or false statements. Parents, legal guardians or responsible adults may cancel a minors license if they no longer wish to be held responsible.
Cancellation means that a license is terminated because of some error or defect or because the licensee is no longer entitled to such license. A new license may be applied for anytime after a cancellation and all fees must be paid at the time of application.
An individual of any age may choose to voluntarily surrender or cancel his/her license at any time. The individual must appear at any Secretary of State Branch Office and surrender the license.
