DMV grants longer license extensions

commercial license renewal

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is now allowing driver’s license extensions of up to six years for military, foreign service members, and government contractors working outside of Virginia.

The DMV also is lengthening the good cause extensions from one to two years.

Those extensions apply to things like taking care of sick family member’s in a different state..

In all cases, license holders must complete an application process and provide supporting documents.

Currently extended customers will need to apply for the new extensions using the same application process they used originally.

These changes stem from a bill introduced by Delegate Danica Roem of Prince William County.

Governor Glenn Youngkin signed the bill into law on July 1st.
