MEMO

DATE: May 12, 2020

SUBJECT: Product Expiration Dates for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

TO: Tim Adams, CEO IRP, Inc.

FROM: Anita M. Wasko, Director

Bureau of Motor Vehicles

As you are aware, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has implemented operational changes in response to Governor Wolf’s mitigation guidance regarding COVID-19. Many Driver License Centers and Photo License Centers, as well as the Harrisburg Riverfront Office Center (ROC), remain closed.

Effective May 12, 2020, expiration dates for vehicle registrations, safety and emission inspections and Persons with Disability parking placards will be extended for Pennsylvania residents in response to statewide COVID-19 mitigation efforts.

Deadlines on the following products will be extended as follows:

  • Vehicle registrations of all classes which includes, but not limited to, mass transit vehicle registrations, apportioned vehicle registrations, fleet vehicle registrations, dealer plate registrations, temporary registrations and biennial farm exemption certificates scheduled to expire from March 16 through May 31, 2020, the expiration date is now extended through June 30, 2020.
  • Safety inspections and emissions inspections scheduled to expire from March 16 through May 31, 2020, the expiration date is now extended through June 30, 2020.
  • Persons with Disabilities parking placards scheduled to expire from March 16 through May 31, 2020, the expiration date is now extended through June 30, 2020.

These extensions are in addition to those announced on May 1 related to driver’s licenses, photo ID cards, and learner's permits scheduled to expire from March 16, 2020 through May 31, 2020 – these products are also extended through June 30, 2020. A camera card is considered a driver's license, so it is covered by the same terms and conditions extending other driver's license products.

Should you have further questions, please contact Craig Johnson, IRP Manager, via email at crajohnson@pa.gov or by telephone at 717.787.3977.
