DMV issues expiration extension

CHARLESTON — Due to a supply issue, the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles announced today they will extend the expiration dates of all mobility impaired placards to Aug. 31.

Renewal of a permanent mobility impaired placard occurs every five years, and the new cycle historically begins on July 1. However, with supply chain issues, and in an effort to provide seamless, convenient customer service, DMV Commissioner Everett Frazier announced the extension to Aug. 31 to make sure new placards are ready for customers.

“I believe in making sure our customers are taken care of. Unfortunately, due to COVID and other supply chain issues, some of our materials are not available.

“We don’t want our customers to be inconvenienced, so extending the expiration date, on my authority, makes the best sense,” he said.
