Texas Department of Public Safety—
AUSTIN—The Texas Department of Public Safety reminds Texans that it’s important to remember that the extension for expiration dates that was granted in response to COVID-19 remains in effect.
The extension means that if your Texas ID, DL, commercial driver license or election identification certificate card expires on or after March 13, 2020, it falls under the period covered by the State of Disaster Declaration related to COVID-19 and will remain valid for 60 days after which time DPS issues a public notice that the extension period for the disaster declaration has been lifted.
At this time, this 60-day notice has not been issued, and Texans still have time to conduct their renewal transactions
Nearly 700,000 Texas DL/ID cards expired while DL offices were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
By offering Saturday service for renewal and replacement appointments only, DPS is working to provide customers with expired cards an additional option to handle their DL transactions.
