DMV closure extended to at least May 11
As per Gov. Northam’s orders, all 75 DMV customer service centers, DMV 2 Go, DMV Connect and all 13 weigh stations will remain closed to the public until at least May 11, due to the continued spread of COVID-19. The DMV’s website, dmvNOW.com, remains open. Virginians can still renew vehicle registrations, renew some driver’s licenses, change their address and more.
The validity of driver’s licenses, identification cards, and vehicle registrations that would be expiring during this time have been extended. Those whose credential expires between March 15 and May 1 will have an additional 90 days to renew. Credentials with an expiration date from May 2 to June 10 will expire on June 31. Vehicle registrations have been similarly extended. Those expiring in March or April are now extended for 90 days, and those expiring in May are extended 60 days.
Virginia State Police have been directed to suspend enforcement of motor vehicle inspections. Local law enforcement may still issue citations for expired vehicle inspections, though Northam asks that they refrain from doing so at this time.
