License renewals: what can you do if you need to renew your license, but the DMV is closed?

News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Department of Revenue has implemented automatic extensions for expiring driver licenses and motor vehicle registrations, according to the Governor’s Office.

These extensions are effective immediately:

  • Vehicle owners with registrations or license plates expiring in March and April have been granted an automatic two-month extension. Owners will be able to continue operating their vehicles on Missouri roadways without a penalty until they can apply for renewal.
  • The time frame in which a vehicle safety and emission inspection is valid for March and April license plate expirations has also been extended an additional 60 days. Applicants for a title will not be assessed a late title penalty when visiting a license office, effective immediately; this waiver will continue through April 30, 2020. Valid Missouri diver licenses, nondriver licenses and non-commercial instruction permits with original expiration dates of March 1, 2020, through April 30, 2020, have been granted an automatic 60-day extension.
  • The extension does not waive the mandatory retesting requirement for anyone who has allowed their license to expire for more than 184 days. Also, individuals who were provided notice to complete additional testing as part of a medical review program requirement may be given an additional 60 days to comply.
