Thanks to John for passing on: “I know there have been lots of questions about registration and such at the DMV. This DMV update also includes a letter to take with you when traveling outside DC and show you are still compliant. DC DMV Credential Extension Update
Also from the DMV:
“Today, the DC Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) announced the Rhode Island Service Center located at 2350 Washington Place, NE will be closed indefinitely beginning Monday, August 10, 2020. The closure is in response to an increased staffing shortage at that location.
DC DMV continues to accept appointments at its Benning Ridge, Georgetown, and 95 M Street SW service centers. No new appointments are being scheduled at the Rhode Island Service Center. Customers who had scheduled appointments dated on or after August 10 at the Rhode Island Service Center will be honored on their same date and time at other service centers. DC DMV is notifying customers affected by the change.
Additionally, DC DMV has extended the expiration date for all documents expiring on or after March 1–including driver licenses, identification cards, vehicle registrations, inspections, ticket payments and ticket adjudication responses–until 45 days after the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency concludes. All driver licenses, vehicle registrations, and vehicle inspections scheduled to expire have been granted a waiver without penalty until DC DMV reopens at full operating capacity.
Customers are encouraged to use online options by visiting dmv.dc.gov. DC DMV has more than 55 online services enabling customers to “skip the in-person trip.”
