Drivers license expiration waiver ending in April

Local News

AUSTIN, Texas (Nexstar) – The Texas Department of Public Safety is reminding residents that the drivers license expiration waiver will end in a few short months.

As you may recall, Gov. Greg Abbott granted the waiver to all Texans with expired licenses back in March of 2020 due to the pandemic. However, that waiver will end on April 14.

“Drivers License employees have worked diligently to help Texans during challenging times and should be commended for their dedication,” DPS Director Steve McCraw said in a statement. “The Drivers License Division has innovated to better serve constituents by implementing a new appointment solution to improve services and by providing extended hours at several locations across the state.”

Texans have three options when renewing their driver’s licenses including online and over the phone options for those who are eligible and in-person at locations across the state.

You can check your online, over the phone eligibility here.

For those who need to go in person, you can schedule an appointment here.
