California DMV Asks to Renew Licenses Online: expand eligibility

Due to a health contingency, the California DMV asked to renew driver's licenses online. Similarly, it expanded applicants' eligibility.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) encourages eligible Californians to renew their driver's license online, including drivers whose temporary extensions expire July 31.

As part of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic, The DMV issued temporary extensions to California drivers 69 years of age or younger with a non-commercial license, which expires between March and July 2020.

While that extension expires soon, nearly all of those drivers can still avoid a trip to a local DMV officer by renewing their license online. Even if your renewal notice indicates that a face-to-face visit is required.

Governor Gavin Newsom has signed executive orders nullifying renewals in person for those with eligible driver's licenses and ID cards who have reached their maximum out-of-office renewals.

With that extension in effect for the entire California state of emergency or until it is modified, nearly all California drivers under the age of 70 are eligible to renew their license online or by mail.

Also, some drivers, including Californians applying for a REAL ID for the first time, must visit a local office to complete their transaction.

The DMV recommends that applicants for a REAL ID complete the application online. As well as uploading the required documents before visiting an office. Also, it has issued automatic one-year extensions for drivers age 70 and older with expired driver's licenses.
