Malloy orders extenstion of motor vehicle registration expirations and driver’s licenses

Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that he is ordering an extension of expiration dates for motor vehicle registrations and driver’s licenses due to the impending severe winter storm.

The Governor’s action covers expiration dates and periods of validity for motor vehicle registrations, licenses, permits, certificates and other forms of credentials issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles and runs through Jan. 30. This also covers emissions test late fees.

“With the level of snow and wind that we are expecting, it is understandable that residents likely will not be able to meet certain DMV-related deadlines and expiration dates,” Governor Malloy said. “We are ordering those expiration dates to be extended, giving those impacted the opportunity to satisfy their obligations after the storm passes.”

The extension period runs from Jan. 24, when a snow storm shuttered DMV offices, to midnight on Friday, Jan. 30. On Jan. 31, all required late fees and penalties will resume.

The Department of Motor Vehicles also announced today that all knowledge and road skills tests for license applicants are canceled for Tuesday and Wednesday (Jan. 27 and 28) due to storm conditions. To reschedule a test:

• Knowledge Test — Customers should wait for an e-mail from DMV regarding then cancelation, then visit http://ct.gov/dmv/qsc, enter their personal identification number and then follow the instructions.

• Road Test — Customers should call 860-263-5700 within the Hartford area and those outside the Hartford area can call toll-free at 800-842-8222. DMV will also be contacting customers with appointments.

With the impending storm predicted to bring heavy amounts of snow, drivers of commercial and passenger vehicles are reminded about the requirement to remove snow and ice from hoods, trunks and roofs or face fines and penalties. Drivers are exempt from the fines when the snow, sleet and freezing rain begins or continues while the vehicle is traveling. Parked vehicles are also exempt from the required removal of ice and snow.
