SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – California drivers whose vehicle registrations are due to expire in July will get an extension because the legislature hasn’t decided whether to keep an increase in the vehicle license fee.

The legislature has asked the DMV to hold off sending out renewal notices. DMV spokesman Armando Botello said that the agency notified law enforcement of the potential problems in doing that, and starting next month renewals will be sent out.

KCBS’ Bob Melrose Reports:

”When July 1st comes around we will be sending the notices,” said Botello. “Anybody whose registration has to be renewed during the month of July will be given a 30-day extension. That means that if your registration is due on July 1st you will have until August 1st to pay it and you will not be charged any additional fees during those 30 days.”

About three million California cars’ registrations will expire in July.
