Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Clark County License office in Kahoka is joining a growing number of license offices that are temporarily closing. The Clark County License office will be CLOSED beginning Wednesday, March 25. They hope to resume operations on April 6, but will reassess as that date draws nearer.
On Saturday, Missouri Governor Mike Parson’s order about social distancing included a provision to automatically extend licenses and registrations. It read, in part:
To alleviate public congestion in local license offices, DOR has implemented automatic extensions for expiring driver licenses and motor vehicle registrations. These extensions are effective immediately:
Vehicle owners with registrations or license plates expiring in March and April have been granted an automatic two-month extension. Owners will be able to continue operating their vehicles on Missouri roadways without penalty until they can apply for renewal.
The time frame in which a vehicle safety and emission inspection is valid for March and April license plate expirations has also been extended an additional 60 days. Applicants for title will not be assessed a late title penalty when visiting a license office, effective immediately; this waiver will continue through April 30, 2020.
Valid Missouri driver licenses, nondriver licenses and noncommercial instruction permits with original expiration dates of March 1, 2020, through April 30, 2020, have been granted an automatic 60-day extension.
The Missouri Department of Revenue website has a complete listing of License Office hours and closings.
