ALBANY — The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles is urging state residents to renew their expired documents as the extension on vehicle registrations and non-driver IDs nears its end.

Vehicle registrations including temporary auto dealer registrations and non-driver identification cards that expired in March or after will no longer remain valid after Nov. 3. New Yorkers can easily renew their registrations and non-driver IDs on the DMV website.

“The state took extraordinary steps to protect the health and safety of the public during the height of the COVID-19 health emergency including closing DMV offices and extending the validity of vital documents to reduce the burden on New Yorkers,” said DMV Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder in a news release. “As the extension for non-driver IDs and vehicle registrations sunsets, I encourage those who need to renew their documents to use our website; it is fast and easy to do. Those who need to schedule a road test, renew their driver license or get their vehicle inspected should not delay.”

Driver licenses, permits and vehicle inspections that expired during the Coronavirus pandemic have been extended at least through Nov. 3.

The DMV encourages those who need to renew a driver license to do so online, and vehicle owners should get their vehicles inspected if they are past due.

Inspection stations have been open throughout the pandemic and must comply with health and safety guidelines to ensure the protection of their customers.

In addition to renewing online or by mail, a limited number of in-office reservations are available for customers who must renew in person.
