Marylanders are reminded that under Governor Larry Hogan’s new Executive Order issued on May 12, 2021, customers who have an MDOT MVA product that expired since March 12, 2020 must have those products renewed under the new deadlines. All driver’s licenses – both non-commercial and commercial (CDLs) – as well as learner’s permits and identification (ID) cards must be renewed by August 15, 2021.
