Due to a supply issue, the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles has announced that 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, Everett Frazier, DMV commissioner, 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.
For more information, please visit the DMV website at dmv.wv.gov, and view the informational brochure on mobility impaired license plates and placards at https://transportation.wv.gov/DMV/DMVFormSearch/Mobility-Impaired-Brochure-4-2014-wf.pdf. Customers need to follow the same application and renewal process. The only change is the current expiration date being extended.
