You can take the renewal class 60 days ahead of your expiration date.
Unfortunately, NM DPS does not allow taking the class more than 60 days ahead of the expiration date.
You can also take the renewal class up to 60 days after your permit has expired. If you are not able to take the class within 60 days of your permit expiration, you are not eligible for a renewal class and you must take the entire 15-hour "New Permit" class over again.
NOTE: During New Mexico's COVID-19 operations, NM DPS is granting an additional 60 days after permit expiration to take the renewal class without having to take the entire class over again. So, you will have up to 120 days after expiration to take the renewal class.
