The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles has granted a five-month extension of the expiration date on more than two dozen DMV credentials, including driver licenses, learners permits, commercial driver licenses, vehicle registrations, special id cards and many others.

Governor Roy Cooper on Monday signed a bill that provides for the extensions and also allows DMV to waive any penalties for late registrations.

The five-month extension applies to any credential that expires on or after March 1, and before August 1.

The extensions are part of the nearly $1.6 billion dollar COVID-19 relief bill the governor signed into law Monday.
