The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles is extending the deadline for those ages 60 and above to renew their driver's license with no late fee, citing the recently elevated risk in health due to the uptick in COVID-19 cases. Licensed drivers who are 60 or older, and have a license that is set to expire anytime in January, February, or March, have until March 31, 2022 to renew it without having to pay a fee for being past a deadline. Also, drivers who are within the ages of 18-64 have the option to renew their driver's license online. The criteria for that also includes being a U.S citizen with an unrestricted driver’s license, have not had changes to medical conditions or history, and those who do not need a “Real ID”. That renewal process can be done at (wisconsindmv.gov/renewDL).
The DMV reminds people that in person visits are limited to Driver’s License renewals, obtaining an ID to vote, and new residents to obtain identification. Those appointments can also be made online at the following link:
