The Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has extended the license renewal period for drivers 60 and over due to the current elevated health risks with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Licensed drivers in the 60 and over category whose licenses are scheduled to expire in January, February or March 2022, will now have until March 31, 2022, to renew their license. There will be no late fee.

Law Enforcement is aware of the change as records are automatically updated within the system. New expiration dates are visible to authorities in real-time. In fact, anyone can check the status of their licenses, including the expiration date, online.


People can make appointments online for a driver’s license renewal, or complete the application online and submit it electronically. Have questions? Email the DMV at or call 608-264-7447.
