On November 15, Governor Inslee announced new restrictions for some businesses. This is in response to the recent rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus in Washington and across the country. The new restrictions apply to all counties, regardless of what phase the county is in. They are effective from midnight on November 16 through December 14.
We’re continuing to extend the expiration dates of valid Washington state driver licenses and instruction permits. This applies to driver licenses and learner permits expiring March 1 – April 30, 2020. Those expiring October 1 – December 31, 2020 are also extended. This gives you extra time to renew online or schedule an appointment without incurring penalties or late fees. Permit holders can continue to practice driving.
We extended licenses and instruction permits expiring March 1 – April 30, 2020 an extra 90 days. This extends them a total of 270 days. This means they expire 9 months after the date printed on the card.
