LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order extending renewal dates for driver's licenses, CDLs, state ID cards and vehicle registrations to Sept. 30.

Those with driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations expiring between Feb. 1 and June 30 have until Sept. 30 to have them renewed.

“I am pleased to continue to work with the Legislature to codify significant executive orders that help Michiganders cope with the COVID-19 pandemic,” Whitmer said. “These bills will give Michigan residents peace of mind and reduce the amount of person-to-person interaction necessary when renewing licenses and registrations.”

“We are grateful for the support of the Legislature and Governor Whitmer in our work to ensure essential transactions can be conducted in our branch offices in a way that balances the health of staff and customers with the needs of Michigan drivers,” Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said. “We have been continually assessing the safest way to maintain branch operations, and this legislation will go a long way toward those efforts.”

Many transactions, including vehicle registration renewals, do not need to be conducted in person and should be done online at
