WISCONSIN — Wisconsinites over the age of 60 now have until November 23 to renew their driver's license.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Wisconsin DMV has extended their license renewal deadline several times.

Now, they are doing it again for people over the age of 60.

This new 60-day extension applies to those drivers whose licenses expired after March 12.

“Further extending the deadline for this at-risk population gives them more opportunity to plan their visit to a DMV Customer Service Center,” DMV Administrator Kristina Boardman said. "We do not want people in this higher-risk demographic to feel that they need to renew their license when they may not be comfortable going to a DMV office.”

With the announcement of the extension, the DMV also stated that drivers can renew their license up to a year before it expires. That means if your license expires this winter, you can renew it now before the weather gets cold.

If you're younger than 60-years-old and need to renew your license, the DMV is taking precautions to keep you safe.

According to the department, "DMV Customer Service Centers have implemented safety protocols. All DMV employees wear face coverings... services inside DMVs are limited to driver licensing or ID-related needs to promote social distancing. All vehicle-related services can be done online, by mail or through a third party."
