WISCONSIN — If your license expired during the coronavirus pandemic, you have until July 25 to renew it without a fee. That is unless you're 60-years-old or older.

The Wisconsin DMV extended their renewal period and waived late fees due to the coronavirus. However, that grace period is coming to an end.

Anyone under the age of 60 whose license expired after March 12 is required to renew their license by July 25. However, they can do it without actually having to go to the DMV. Because of the current pandemic, the DMV created an online portal for renewals.

“Drivers waiting to renew now have two options – renew online or visit a DMV,” Wisconsin DMV Administrator Kristina Boardman said. “As the extension period comes to a close, renewing online from the comfort of your home is the most convenient way to renew and skip the trip to a DMV.”

If you're over the age of 60, you have a little more time to get that license renewed. In fact, you have an extra 60 days. Simply renew your license by September 24.
