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.

If your license is expired for more than one year you will have to provide proof of legal presence unless you have provided this information since 11/01/2007. 
 
If you have a class D license expired greater than one year but less than three years and you are a US citizen with a state-certified birth certificate, you may take this document to a tag agent.
 
 
If you are not a U.S. citizen you must go to a Driver License Exam site and present a legal presence document.
