The Texas Department of Public Safety has approved a 60-day extension on driver's licenses with an expiration date of March 13, 2020, or later.

The extension is valid for up to 60 days after the end of the governors disaster declaration, according to a letter from the department.

"This extension applies to expiration date only," the letter read. "A person who is not eligible to drive due to an active enforcement action (suspension, revocation or denial) may use the card for identification purposes only. DPS has notified law enforcement agencies and has asked for their understanding and cooperation in this matter."
