(DPS) — The Department of Public Safety-Bureau of Motor Vehicles remains closed but it continues to extend recently expired driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations without penalty.

All expired driver's 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 concern of the coronavirus.

All recent expired driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations will have their expiration dates ex- tended. 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 BMV reopens for normal operation.

An official announcement will be sent out to the public once the BMV office is scheduled to re-open.

Officers conducting patrol are aware of this and are mindful of recently expired driver's licenses and vehicle registrations. Motorists are asked to notify their insurance provider(s) as a courtesy.

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.
