After multiple extensions, the expiration date for most driver's licenses, registrations and inspectionsthat had been set to expire in 2020 is now here.
The Motor Vehicle Commissionpreviously extended that expiration date to Dec. 31 for documents that would have expired between June 1 and Aug. 31. The documents covered by the extensions included standard driver's licenses, permits, non-driver IDs, vehicle registrations, inspections and temporary tags.
Motor Vehicle Commission spokesperson William Connolly said there are no plans to extend expiration dates further and that no extensions will be in place as of January 1, 2021.

He noted that most customers can renew their documents online and also said that commercial driver's licenses are the exception because they have been extended, and that certain heavy-vehicle registrations and visa-restricted licenses, which the state cannot extend,must be done in person.
Earlier this week the agency announced that it would be delaying a new state driver's license that was supposed to launch in January and would have been available to immigrants regardless of legal status. They cited COVID-19 as the cause.
