CA| On March 16, 2020, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requested California law enforcement to exercise discretion for 60 days in their enforcement of drivers’ license and vehicle registration expirations for 60 days beginning March 16, 2020.
On April 14, 2020, DMV extended the expiration date of non-commercial driver licenses for individuals 69 years old and younger with expiration dates between March 1, 2020, and May 31, 2020. These licenses are now valid through May 31, 2020.
On April 14, 2020, the DMV also extended the expiration date of all commercial driver licenses expiring between March and June 2020 to June 30, 2020.
Now that the DMV has extended the standard license expiration to May 31, 2020, and Commerical Licenses until June 30, 2020, insurers are being asked to refrain from using the expiration of policyholders’ driver’s licenses for any of the reasons set forth in the March 18, 2020 Notice prior to the new expiration dates applicable to commercial and non-commercial drivers licenses.
