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.

TSA accepts driver licenses for a year after the expiration date.
