The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending the REAL ID full enforcement date by 19 months, from October 1, 2021 to May 3, 2023, due to circumstances resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


Commercial driver license (CDL) and commercial learner permit (CLP) expiration dates have been extended by FMCSA until November 30, 2021, as long as they were not expired prior to March 1st, 2020. Medical certificate and variance expiration dates have been extended until November 30, 2021, as long as they were not expired prior to June 1, 2021.


DPS and tag agents are now offering eight (8) year driver licenses and identification cards. Fees are double the four (4) year option.

Point Suspensions are based upon the accumulation of points associated with each conviction of moving traffic violations that the driver has committed.  When a driver accumulates ten (10) or more points on their driving record, the driver’s license will be suspended for a specific period of time.

To reinstate this type of Order of Suspension, the driver must:

  1. Serve the duration of the suspension as specified in the Order of Suspension (either 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months);

  2. Pay the statutory fee of $50.00*; and

  3. If the Order of Suspension is for a 6 or 12 month period of time, the driver’s traffic record will classify the driver as a hazard to public safety (“Chronic Violator”).  When the period of suspension has expired and the driver has not violated any traffic laws for the preceding six (6) months, the driver will need to appear for an interview before a DPS Driver Compliance Hearing Officer to apply for reinstatement.
*NOTE: The statutory fees required for reinstatement are dependent on the laws in effect at the time of the suspension and are subject to change by the Legislature.
