The new deadline is December 31st, 2020.
The change impacts those who have an expiring license between March and the end of the year.
The extension is automatic, but eligible drivers won‘t receive a new card in the mail.
Beginning October 5th, drivers can request a free temporary card online to document the extension, though one isn’t needed to drive. California law enforcement has been alerted.
