New Renewal Deadlines For MDOT MVA Credentials In Maryland

Includes expired driver’s licenses, registrations, and other related products.








Frederick, MD (KB) Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administrator Chrissy Nizer said the MVA has released new deadlines for expired licenses, registrations, and other documentation.

“During the COVID emergency, our product had been extended to allow people time to be able to take care of that and renew them,” she said. The Governor also announced an Executive Order which extended the validity of expired credentials.

Nizer said all driver’s licenses — both non-commercial and commercial (CDLs) — and learner’s permits and identifications cards that expired during the state of emergency must now be renewed by August 15, 2021.

She said all other MDOT MVA-issued documents must be renewed by June 30, 2021. That includes vehicle registrations and handicap placards.

Coming up soon, Medical Certifications for CDL holders that expired on or after December 1, 2020 will remain valid until May 31, 2021.

She said the date for federal Real ID has also been extended to May 3, 2023.

“Our customers have some additional time to become compliant, so no need to make an appointment if all you’re doing is providing Real ID documents,” said Nizer. “We encourage you to hold off and wait until we get through the customers who have expired products.”

The Administrator said residents with expired products will be notified by email or regular mail.
