Gov. Burgum extends driver license renewals until August 31

Anyone looking to renew a license will be required to make an appointment.

BISMARCK, N.D.–Gov. Doug Burgum signed an executive order to extend vehicle registrations and driver license renewals until August 21.

The new executive order replaces an old one which waived expiration dates for registrations and driver licenses.

Anyone looking to renew a license will be required to make an appointment and only people renewing a North Dakota driver license will be able to apply for a REAL ID.

Robin Rehborg, North Dakota Department of Transportation Deputy Director for Driver Safety, said, “At this time, NDDOT is focused on serving customers with driver’s license and motor vehicle tabs that expired March 1 – August 31, 2020 and will continue to schedule appointments based on immediate need. Currently there are 20,650 driver license renewals and 48,000 Motor Vehicle registrations that expired during the COVID emergency.”

Many services being offered by the NDDOT can be done online to avoid in-person transactions. Driver license services such as change of address, renewals and replacements can be done online. Vehicle renewals can also be done online, at a self-service kiosk, by drop box or mail.

You can schedule an appointment at or by calling 1-855-633-6835.
