SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Department of Motor Vehicles is providing a one-year extension to seniors age 70 and older with a noncommercial driver license with an expiration date between March 1 and December 31.
This extension is in efforts to prevent people from visiting the DMV during the pandemic.
The DMV provided a 120-day extension to seniors in March through July.
Drivers with a suspended license are not eligible.
California law requires drivers age 70 and older to visit a DMV field office to renew their license but gives the DMV authority to issue extensions.
