As the state continues responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles' previously enacted 90-day extension for Connecticut residents with expiring credentials is being extended to a total of 180 days. Eligible DMV credentials that expire between March 10th and June 30th are automatically covered by this extension.
In addition to extending the expiration date of DMV credentials, late fees associated with eligible expired credentials will be waived during the time period of the extension for qualifying credentials.
Deadlines have been extended for several DMV-related items including all Licenses, Permits and Identification Cards, car and boat registrations, Emissions Testing and Retesting due dates and Flashing Light permits. Any permanent disability placard that expires at the same time as an eligible credential, will be extended. The validity of school bus proficiency tests due during this time is also being extended.
Temporary Paper License expiration dates will be extended by 180 days for those obtained after March 10th.
For any person who moved to Connecticut after March 10th, the deadline for obtaining a license, registration, or emissions inspection in Connecticut will be extended by 180 days. Temporary registrations obtained after March 10th are also extended.
Suspensions will be delayed by 180 days as a result of failure to attend an Operator Retraining or Child Safety Seat Program, or nonpayment of fees due to a returned check or rejected payment. Violations and penalties associated with failing to meet 30-day recalibration of ignition interlock devices will be waived until September 10th.
Expiring business Licenses credentials will be extended by 180 days from the expiration date. VIN Verification: Waived until September 10.
