What is the grace period for an expired California driver's license?
The other writers are correct. There is NO grace period in California for an expired California driver’s license. Nor is there ever likely to be one. California is very strict on these matters, and on matters of identification in general.It is highly encouraged that you renew your license 1 to 60 days prior to its expiration. Failure to do so automatically throws you into the “non-renewable category,” which means doing everything again — written test, eye test, and sometimes the road test, as well. Plus, you are required to appear IN PERSON, once you have fallen into the “non-renewable category.”See California Drivers License Renewal Guide | DMV.org , quoted below:“Your California drivers license expires every 5 years on your birthday.The CA DMV will mail you a renewal notice about 2 months before the expiration date.Depending on your driver's license status (valid, expired, suspended, or lost/damaged), you can renew either:• Online.• By mail.• By phone.• In person.To be eligible for online, by phone and by mail renewals, you must:• Have a driver license that expires within 60 days.• Be less than 70 years old.• Not have a suspended license or driving probation.• Not have failed to appear in court within the past 2 years.• Not made your last 2 renewals by mail.• Not hold an out-of-state driver's license.NOTE: Your California drivers license renewal notice will inform you if you qualify to renew online, by phone, or by mail.”Good luck!
In the state of North Carolina, how much of a grace period do you have to renew an expired drivers license?
In most states it’s 6 months for the DMV/BMV after a 6 month period you’ll have to retake the drivers test both written (if they have this) and driving part but as for the Police one day expired can get you a ticket.Myself and most Officers will write a ticket for anybody with an expired license that’s a month overdue but I will take back the ticket if you go and get it renewed within 24 hours of the ticket being issued, I will only give a grace period of 4 weeks and only give you a written warning.
How do I renew a CA driver's license when out of town for an extended period of time through mail?
Although we do not process license or registration renewals in California yet, we have spoken with DMV representatives that stated that renewed licenses can be sent only to the address on file in the DMV database.To have it mailed elsewhere, a representative from the CA DMV call center communicated that others in a similar situation like yours have changed the mailing address for their license (info on how to change your recorded address here: https://www.etagsdirect.com/addr...) and replaced it with a P.O. Box address of a forwarding service that then mails your license to whatever address you request. There would be a fee for the use of a POBox forwarding service of course. You should call their DMV help center at 800-777-0133. You may find a better solution if you you speak with a representative directly. They typically have long hold times (20+ min) but you can request to put your name or phone number in queue to receive a call back when a rep becomes available instead of waiting on the phone. Hope that helps and good luck.
How can I renew my drivers license if I cannot get an appointment until after it expires. Is there a grace period state of CA?
For the good driver, California allows at least 1 remote renewal within the 10-year life of a driver’s license. After that, it must be a visit to the DMV for new ID photo, as required by Federal regulations, and eye test. Regretfully, there are more people who must now appear at DMV just for this renewal.Best option is to go to the California DMV website and scout for the local DMV offices with the shortest waiting times from the entrance. Take a morning or afternoon off and join the procession into the DMV office. The shortest wait is that for the non-exam renewal.Thanks for A2A.

How long does it take to renew CA drivers license?
It takes about half of a day in San Francisco and surrounding suburbs. San Francisco is definitely slower than suburban locations.You wait in line to get a number, then you wait until your number is called, then you wait to take an updated picture. By this time, you are likely at between 2 hours and 4 hours.The wait time published on DMV website for each office, although it’s updated in real-time, is useless. It only tells you how long you will wait after you get your number. The time spent in line to get the number is not measured.We usually can renew them by mail, but the license expires every 4th birthday and driving with an expired license is a misdemeanor. Therefore, many Californians spend their birthday or the day before at the DMV.DMV will tell you to get an appointment, except that appointment merely lets you skip the line before you get the number. When you show up on-time, you will still wait. Appointments also tend to be booked 2 to 3 months in advance.

I cannot get an appointment at the DMV until after my drivers license expires. Do I have a grace period? For how long? I need to come in as I am over 70yrs.
If you cannot get an appointment at your local DMV, try setting one up at another that is nearby. If you still cannot get an appointment before the expiration on your license, schedule the earliest one you can get, and explain to the DMV rep how difficult it was to even get that appointment. They might be able to waive any late fees, since you have to go in person.
