Because of recent flooding in some parts of the state, Transportation Secretary Barry J. Schoch, announced that PennDOT will offer flood victims replacement driver license and vehicle products at no charge.
Driver license products include duplicate licenses, learner’s permits and photo identification cards. Motor vehicle products include replacement license plates and stickers; registration cards; duplicate titles and person with disability placards.
Effective Sept. 8, PennDOT has authorized an extension of the expiration dates for licenses, identification cards and vehicle inspections/registrations. The expiration date for vehicle registration and inspections scheduled to expire on Sept. 30 has been extended until Oct. 14. The expiration date for driver licenses and identification cards scheduled to expire between Sept. 8 and Oct. 13, has been extended until Oct. 14.
Only those customers in areas identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as having been affected by flooding are eligible for the extension. Visit the FEMA Web site for identified areas at www.fema.ogv or the Pennsylvania Emergency Management (PEMA) Web site at www.pema.gov.
PennDOT services for flood victims are available at Photo License Centers around the state but also, to assist flood victims with their motor vehicle and other disaster-related issues, FEMA and PEMA have established Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) located in Bradford, Columbia, Dauphin, Luzerne, Lycoming, Sullivan and Wyoming counties.
To apply for a replacement driver license or motor vehicle products, customers need to complete a PennDOT MV-Flood form, available at disaster recovery centers or online at http://www.dmv.state.pa.us. Products will not be issued on site at the DRCs. Products will be mailed or made available for pick-up at local Driver Licensing Centers.
