Local Department of Motor Vehicles Asks Law Enforcement To Be Lenient

Driver’s licence just expired? Local Cops won’t fine you, for now.

  • As we’re forced into social distancing, going to the local DMV/MOT office is a bad idea.
  • This causes delays for many forms of document renewals and updates.
  • Law Enforcement will not fine offenders for certain infractions.

The main steps involved in attempting to curb the spread of Coronavirus involves social distancing. Getting in line at the local Department Of Transportation office, with 100 other people for an hour or two is exactly what we mustn’t do. It is with this is mind that Quebec’s Société de l’assurance automobile (SAAQ) has asked the local law enforcement to be lenient with drivers who’ve not renewed their driver’s licence.

The California DMV has issued the same request to its constabulary. The extent of this leniency includes expired driver’s licences, vehicle registrations, and in Quebec, also involves recently registered cars currently running with the temporary transit, or tag. If it has expired, you will be entitled to a grace period.

Before heading out in a panic to your local DMV to renew any ID or registration, check the website or make a call. In many cases, you should be allowed a grace period. For example, the California DMV’s grace period has been set to 60 days.

Moreover, many DMV offices have placed limits on the number of people that can enter at the same time. Others like in Nebraska have suspended driving tests and require an appointment to receive services.

If you are caught speeding as roads almost everywhere are nearly deserted, you will still pay a fine, however, so no crazy ideas.
