Those with expiring licenses have a little more time to renew

Virginians now have a little longer to get their expiring driver’s licenses, state-issued identification cards, and vehicle registrations renewed.

Last week, Gov. Ralph Northam amended his executive directive further extending the validity of credentials issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, providing up to an additional 90 days to renew these documents while the DMV continues the process of reopening its customer service centers.

The amended Executive Directive Seven extends the validity of every driver, vehicle, special identification and driver credential due to expire on or before July 31 for an additional 90 days, not to exceed Oct. 31. This extension is in addition to the prior extension of up to 90 days not to exceed Aug. 31. If a credential expires after July 31, it must be renewed before its expiration date.

As of June 25, 35 of the 75 DMV Customer Service Centers in Virginia have reopened and are accepting appointments.
