RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginians who have driver’s licenses, identification cards, and vehicle registrations that expired during the COVID-19 crisis have an additional 90 days to renew their credentials.

The validity of driver’s licenses and identification cards expiring on or before July 31, 2020, is extended for 90 days, not to exceed August 31, 2020.

This means that a customer whose credential expires between March 15 and May 31 will have 90 days beyond the expiration date to renew, and credentials with an expiration date from June 1 to July 31 must be renewed no later than August 31, 2020.

Vehicle registrations that expire in March, April, and May are extended for 90 days; those expiring in June are extended for 60 days; and those expiring in July are extended for 30 days.

In addition to the credential extensions, DMV will reopen additional customer service centers for appointment-only service for specific services.

DMV will begin serving appointments at the following offices on May 29:

Richmond Central (2300 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23269)
Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Onancock (20 North Street, Onancock, VA 23417)
