The extra extension was made so that drivers would not have to rush into Drivers Services facilities during inclement weather. It does not apply to commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) and CDL learner’s permits. The Secretary of State’s office encourages anyone who can take advantage of online services for any DMV needs to do so.
