Voting is the best way to get your voice heard during the next local, state, or federal election. Make sure you register to vote in time and get yourself to the polls.
If you’ve just moved to Idaho, you’ll need to take care of a few things with the Idaho Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
If you have an out-of-state driver’s license, you’ll need to transfer it for an Idaho license within 90 days of moving to the state. If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), you will only have 30 days to transfer it over.
NOTE: You do not need an ID driver’s license if you’re only in Idaho temporarily to attend college/university or to fulfill your military obligations.
If you’re going to be living in Idaho for at least 90 days continually, you’ll need to register your out-of-state car with the ID DMV. This applies only if your ID address is your principal place of residence.
For more information, see our Car Registration page.

The 25-mile Boise River Greenbelt is one of Boise’s most beloved parks. The tree-lined pathway follows the river through the heart of the city and provides scenic views, wildlife habitat and pedestrian access to many of the city’s popular riverside parks. The Greenbelt also serves as an alternative transportation route for commuters.
