Notaries Can Accept Expired Driver's License for ID Purposes
Because PennDOT has extended the expiration dates for driver licenses, notaries may accept them for identification purposes, as long as they comply with the waiver issued May 26, 2020.
This waiver is limited to PennDOT-issued driver licenses and nondriver identification cards which expired from March 16, 2020 through June 30, 2020 (or any further period as determined by PennDOT). PennDOT has extended the expiration date of these identity products to June 30. Therefore, a Pennsylvania notary public may accept PennDOT-issued IDs that expired between March 16 and June 30, 2020 (or any further period as determined by subsequent extension by PennDOT), as long as the notary indicates the actual issuance and expiration dates of the physical credential in their journal (as already required by law) and also note in their journal “pursuant to COVID waiver approved 5/26/20."
