Virginia, D.C. Extend DMV Closures

The Virginia DMV  announced last week that they have extended the suspension of all in-person services through at least May 11. The state has also extended all vehicles registrations that had been set to expire between March 15 and June 1 for at least 90 days past their initial expiration date.

Among other provisions, the Virginia DMV is also “automatically extending until May 31, 2020 the validity period of every license, permit, and certificate issued to businesses involved in the transportation of people or property for hire.” Please visit the  Virginia DMV’s COVID-19 information page for more details.

Last week, the DC DMV also extended their suspension of in-person services “through the duration of the public health emergency.” As part of this announcement, the District is extending the expiration dates for all vehicle inspections, registrations, licenses, and other related documents through at least June 29.

The District Department of Public Works is suspending ticket adjudication procedures through at least that date as well, though parking, red light, and speed camera enforcement will continue.

Maryland’s MVA announced an indefinite closure of their in-person branches on March 20, and that closure continues. The MVA is offering very limited in-person dealer services at their Glen Burnie branch on select weekdays, as outlined in this MDOT Dealer Bulletin.
