Attention: All IRP Member Jurisdictions and Enforcement Personnel

Notice of Waiver of International Registration Plan (IRP) Requirements

In compliance with Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.8 to slow the spread of COVID-19, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles announced today that all DMV offices and auto bureaus statewide are closed until further notice. This includes both state- and county-run field offices. While offices are closed, expiration dates for driver licenses, non-driver IDs, and registrations will be extended.

IRP Registrations, and Temporary Registrations expiring on or after March 1, 2020, will be extended through April 19, 2020. At this time, we ask that all IRP jurisdictions waive and delay enforcement action on these vehicles operating in your jurisdiction during this timeframe. If the order is extended, we will ask jurisdictions to continue to waive and delay enforcement action until New York is no longer under a State of Emergency.

Any questions concerning this can be sent via email to [email protected].
