In accordance with applicable laws and the current Mayor’s Order, all DC DMV documents with an expiration date on or after March 1 will remain valid until 45 days after the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency concludes. Eligible documents include driver licenses, identification cards, vehicle registrations, inspections, ticket payments and ticket adjudication responses.
Under DC law, your license, registration and inspection are still valid.
All driver licenses, vehicle registrations, and vehicle inspections scheduled to expire have been granted a waiver without penalty until DC DMV reopens at full operating capacity. Customers are encouraged to use online options by visiting dmv.dc.gov. DC DMV has more than 55 online services enabling customers to “skip the in-person trip.”
If you are traveling out of town, it is recommended that you print out and carry this memo with you. If you have any questions, please contact the District’s Call Center at 311 or 202-727-2200.
This memorandum will be posted on coronavirus.dc.gov/DMV for the duration of its validity for law enforcement verification purposes.
