(DPS) — The Department of Public Safety-Bureau of Motor Vehicle will extend recently expired driver’s license and vehicle registrations without penalty.

All expired licenses have a grace period of 30 working days after the expiration date for renewal before a $20 penalty fee is owed. All expired vehicle registrations have a grace period of 10 days after the expiration date for renewal before a $30 penalty fee is owed. As of March 16, 2020, BMV was temporarily closed, as part of the nationwide concerns over the coronavirus.

All recently expired driver’s license and vehicle registration will have their expiration dates extended. For example, if your CNMI driver’s license or vehicle registration expires during the temporary closure of BMV, you will be granted a waiver without penalty until the bureau reopens for normal operation.

If you have an expired driver’s license or vehicle registration, you should notify your insurance provider as a courtesy.

Officers conducting patrol are aware of these issues and are mindful of recently expired driver’s license and vehicle registration.

The governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and the Department of Public Safety highly advise the public to refrain from making unnecessary trips to public places. Limit public exposure to grocery store trips and food pick-ups.

Your CNMI law enforcement officers and your government care for the well-being of you and your family.
