California DMV extends licenses for seniors

Posted on: September 17, 2020

California DMV has extended noncommercial driver licenses expiring during the COVID-19 pandemic. The terms of the extension depend on a driver’s age.

License holders 69 and younger (beginning March 1, 2020)
Most drivers now qualify for online renewal.
License holders over the age of 70 (March-December 2020 expirations)Extension valid for one year from the original expiration date.

The extensions are automatic, but eligible drivers will not receive a new card or paper extension in the mail. As an option, these drivers can request a free temporary paper extension online through DMV’s Virtual Field Office to document their extension, though one is not needed to drive.

Our Happy Residents
  • My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.

  • Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
