Michigan drivers whose licenses expire during the COVID-19 pandemic won’t be penalized or charged late fees until June 30th.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an Executive Order on Monday temporarily extending the expiration of valid driver’s licenses, state identification cards and commercial vehicle registrations. This applies to those set to expire between March 1 and May 31.

“In times of crisis and uncertainty, the last thing you want to think about is having to renew your driver’s license or state ID card,” Whitmer said. “It is my sincere hope this order gives all Michiganders with expiring identification some peace of mind as we continue our united front to slow the spread of COVID-19 across our state.”

This temporary order does not apply to people with suspended or revoked driver’s licenses, but will suspend penalties for driving with a recently expired yet otherwise valid registration.
