SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Licenses for drivers younger than 70 that expire between March and May are now valid through May 31.

All commercial driver licenses, endorsements and certificates expiring between March and June are now valid through June 30. The extension does not include medical certificates for commercial drivers, which requires additional administrative actions scheduled in the near future.

Californians with a suspended license are not eligible, extensions don't require any action on the part of drivers.

However, the DMV will continue to review and process online renewals, and encourages drivers who are eligible to renew their license online to do so.

The temporary extensions are in addition to other steps the DMV announced earlier this month to help Californians with expiring licenses including: A 120-day extension for drivers age 70 and older - drivers age 70 and older with expiring noncommercial licenses are receiving an extension in the mail automatically and temporarily waiving required in-person renewals for eligible driver license and identification cardholders with expirations in March, April and May.

The DMV will continue to provide essential services via mail, online, kiosks, its call center, available business partners and now virtually to process critical transactions, including eligible driver license and vehicle registration renewals, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
