Can I get an extension on an expired drivers permit?
Yes, but you might have to retake the written test and pay the drivers license fees again, depending on how long it’s been and which state you live in. Some states allow you to renew the learners permit without penalty if it’s been less than a year since the expiration date. If it’s been longer than a year, expect to redo the test and fees. In other states, such as California, even a short period of expiration means retaking the written test and pay the drivers permit fee again.
Having and maintaining a valid permit is the first step to getting a regular permanent drivers license in most cases, so it's important to take care of this. Otherwise, you may be denied a drivers license--and certainly do not drive until you have a valid drivers permit.
Check with your local DMV for more details.
