DMVs temporarily closed

All 75 Department of Motor Vehicles customer service centers in Virginia are closed and all DMV 2 Go and DMV Connect services postponed until at least April 2 in response to the continued spread of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.

To minimize customer inconvenience, DMV is extending the validity of driver’s licenses, identification cards, and vehicle registrations that expire between March 15 and May 15 for 60 days. This includes individuals aged 75 and older who are typically required to make an in-person visit to renew.

Customers whose driver’s license or identification card expires between March 15 and May 15 will have an additional 60 days to renew their credential. However, those Virginians eligible to renew online or by mail are encouraged to take advantage of those services.

Vehicle registrations that expire in March and April should be renewed online or by mail. Replacement titles can be obtained online and original title transactions can be conducted by mail. If in-person service is needed, these customers will have an additional 60 days to renew credentials without a late fee. During the office closures, DMV will continue to process the transactions that come in through mail and the website, dmvNOW.com.
