Additional extension granted for expiring driver licenses and IDs

While WYDOT’s Driver Services Offices are open, residents who have driver licenses and identification cards that will soon be expiring will have additional time to renew.

Governor Mark Gordon signed a 180-day grace period this week giving residents more time to renew their credentials.

The extension, which applies to credentials expiring between March 15th, 2020, through September 30th, 2020, enables high-risk groups to wait to renew.

“We are open for business and encourage people that can, to come in and renew their driver’s license prior to their expiration date. However, we realize our high-risk citizens, those with underlying health conditions and those who are older, may want to take advantage of this extension so they remain safe,” said Misty Dobson, WYDOT’s Driver Services program manager. 

If a resident has an expired license and wants to wait, they can visit WYDOT’s Driver Services webpage and download (http://www.dot.state.wy.us/COVID-19) and print the 180-day grace period letter that they may want to carry with them.  

For those who would still like to conduct business at Driver Services, WYDOT has instituted several safety protocols to help protect citizens and employees.

Driver Services offices throughout the state have implemented safety and cleaning protocols since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Driver Services employees wipe down their stations with cleaners after each transaction and have plexiglass barriers at their desks to provide separation between themselves and the customers.

Examiners also wipe down the vehicles used for road testing, wear masks, and require all applicants to wear masks.

Although residents can conduct business at a local Driver Services Office, they can also take care of some items online, by email or by phone. The following services are available through these alternate methods.
