Hogan is also suspending all noncommercial driver’s license testing and reducing hours of operations at the Motor Vehicle Administration centers.
As chairman of the National Governors Association, Hogan sent a letter to President Trump on Tuesday requesting an extension of the Real ID deadline. States are under pressure to issue millions of Real ID licenses by Oct. 1, when the credential will be required for domestic travel.
The coronavirus crisis is already disrupting efforts to meet the deadline, and officials worry about long lines at MVA or DMV offices during the virus crisis.
To preserve the health and safety of customers and employees, all MDOT MVA branch offices and the Customer Service Center are closed. This operational change, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, is effective immediately and until further notice. Please visit COVID-19 and MDOT MVA – What You Need to Know to learn more.
