City revenue office closes; drivers licenses, vehicle plates get extensions

ST. LOUIS – The Department of Revenue Office in City Hall will close during the coronavirus crisis, in response to Missouri’s decision to extend by 60 days the deadlines to renew driver licenses and vehicle registrations.

The moves were made to protect the health and safety of the public and employees by reducing the number of people going to City Hall and local license offices.

“The people in my office and I care deeply about the public’s safety and wellbeing,” City of St. Louis Collector of Revenue Gregory F.X. Daly said in a statement on Sunday, March 22. “When many of the other DOR offices closed, we remained open to serve the people who wanted to make sure their driver licenses and motor vehicle registrations were in compliance with state requirements. Thanks to the state’s decision, these folks can stay home and focus on taking care of themselves and their families.”

Missouri Driver Licenses
Valid Missouri driver licenses with expiration dates of March 1, 2020, through April 30, 2020, get an automatic 60-day extension from the date of expiration.
The extension won’t waive mandatory retesting for anyone who is more than 184 days overdue in renewing a license.

Expiring Motor Vehicle Registrations
Vehicle owners with license plates expiring in March and April also get the two-month extension without penalty.
Safety and emission inspections for the March and April license plates are extended, too.
Applicants for title won’t be hit with a late title penalty when visiting a license office, through April 30.
