If you have a resident 3-year license that is valid in 2017, you are automatically locked in for the length of the 3-year license. Once the 3-year time period ends, you will need to buy a new license to remain in the Price Lock program.
If you have a Lifetime Certificate, you are automatically locked in for as long as the Price Lock program is active.
If you are serving in the U.S. military, together with your spouse and children under 18, and are officially transferred out of state but maintain Idaho as your official state of residence, you are eligible for Price Lock. You have two options.
  • With proper documentation you can purchase an annual license at 2017 prices and receive all the benefits of being locked in, as long as Price Lock is active.
  • You can also simply purchase a 3-year license any time, or any year, at 2017 prices and receive all the benefits of being locked in, as long as Price Lock is active.
If you are a fulltime college student attending school out of state but maintain Idaho as your official state of residence, you can still lock in 2017 prices if you didn’t buy a 2017 license. You have two options.
