D.C. To Crack Down On Expired Licenses

(Washington, DC) — The District is announcing plans to crack down on expired driver’s licenses and identification cards. The Department of Motor Vehicles says it will step up enforcement of expired licenses starting September 9th. Many residents have been driving around with expired identification cards due to the inability to get them renewed due to COVID-19. If your driver’s license has been expired for more than a year, you must take and pass the knowledge test or take D.C.’s online traffic school course for a waiver. Those with expired licenses exceeding 545 days will have to take and pass the knowledge test and the road skills test before securing a new permit.
