Offering to temporarily suspend the requirement to have current license plate stickers through June 2020 for vehicles with registration expiring between March 4 and June 30, 2020 and waiving the late fees and penalties for vehicle registration renewals due between March 16 and May 31, 2020, and paid within 60 days of the original expiration date. The DMV will mail a refund check to reimburse customers who paid for the registration penalties for expiration dates on or after March 16, 2020.
No fee for waiving late fees and penalties. To calculate registration renewal fees, use the Registration Fee Calculator located at https://bit.ly/3c93WIG.
Please Note: California has not waived smog requirements for vehicle registration. If your renewal notice indicates a smog test is required, your vehicle must pass the smog test before you receive your new registration and sticker. With the 60-day waiver of late fees and penalties for vehicle registration renewals due between March 16 and May 31, 2020, you now have more time to complete the smog check. The DMV recommends customers have their vehicle pass a smog check before paying registration since customers who pay their renewal fees before the smog test will not receive their new registration and sticker until the vehicle passes the smog test.
Individuals may renew their registration through the DMV’s Virtual Field Office at https://bit.ly/35yhZVy
The DMV is offering to temporarily suspend, through June 22, 2020, the requirement to submit a transfer of ownership within 10 days for vehicle transfers due to the temporary closure of DMV field offices. Late fees and penalties while the 10-day requirement has been suspended will be waived by the DMV. Title transfers are still available through the DMV Virtual Field Office. Vehicle transfers occurring on or after March 4, 2020 are eligible for extension. No fee for extension. Fee for transfer of ownership will be determined when the application is submitted to the DMV. Payment can be made through electronic check.
To submit a transfer of ownership, visit the DMV Virtual Field Office at https://bit.ly/2W7HVUV. Individuals will have the option to upload documents and provide an e-signature if required. Information needed will include a copy of the title signed by the buyer, seller, and lienholder if applicable, the individual’s driver license number, the vehicle’s license plate number (VIN), the legal owner or lienholder’s name and address, the vehicle make, model and year, and the purchase date and price. If the title has not been signed by all required parties, you may not request a title transfer through the DMV Virtual Field Office.
Offering to extend the expiration dates of California IDs that will be expiring on or or after March 4, 2020, to be valid through June 22, 2020. No fee for extension. There is a $32 fee to renew an ID. Please Note: The most recent photo on file at the DMV will be used as the photo on the new ID if renewal is done online.
The extension is automatic and does not require additional action on the cardholder’s part. Individuals who wish to renew their California ID may still be able to do so online by visiting the DMV’s online website at https://bit.ly/3cjBjbC.
The California DMV is allowing individuals to avoid required visits to DMV field offices for
60 days beginning on March 16, 2020 in order to protect the health and safety of individuals who are at risk to COVID-19 such as older adults and other immunocompromised individuals.
During this period, the DMV is asking law enforcement in California to exercise discretion when enforcing expiration dates of driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations.
Example visits for driver’s license renewal include individuals who are subject to vision testing, have a complex driving history, are required to renew in the office due to their last visit being 15 years prior, or who are 70 years
of age or older and are required to take a knowledge test.
Example visits for vehicle registration renewal include outdated insurance information, registration that has expired for 90 days or more, smog issues, and recent transfers.
