Is military personnel eligible for deferral of drivers license and registration renewal?
Military Drivers License and Vehicle Registration DeferralThere is no nationwide law regarding U.S. Military personnel and vehicle and driver license matters. Each state's DMV office governs this situation differently.
In Wisconsin, for example, military personnel stationed outside of the state on active duty have their drivers license expiration dates waived. It is not until they either return to the state or are discharged that they must renew.
In Washington, any military person on active duty receives a special drivers license with the word "military" in place of the expiration date. This license remains valid until 90 days following honorable discharge from active duty.
In New Jersey, all active military members are granted expiration immunity. This means any soldier will not have to worry about having his or her drivers license or car registration expiring while on active duty.
And in Virginia, military personnel who are stationed outside of the state do not have to address registration renewal until returning.
For the exact regulations in your state, contact your DMV office. Most DMV Web sites cover this information in detail.
