DMV UPDATE: Renewing License Online
DMV provided my office with the information below on changes to drivers license renewals during the pandemic. This information might be of interest if you need to renew your drivers license.

As part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the DMV issued temporary extensions to California drivers age 69 and younger with a noncommercial license expiring between March and July 2020. While that extension expires today, nearly all of these drivers can still avoid a trip to a DMV field office by renewing their license onlineeven if their renewal notice states an office visit is required.

Governor Gavin Newsom has signed executive orders waiving in-person renewals …. With that wavier in effect for the length of California’s State of Emergency or until modified, nearly all California drivers younger than age 70 are eligible to renew their noncommercial license online or by mail.

Results from the 2020 Los Angeles County Homeless Count indicate that while the total number of people experiencing homelessness has increased overall in the county, the number of homeless individuals has decreased in Palmdale, reporting 289 people experiencing homelessness, down from 325 reported in 2016. Overall LA County numbers increased from 39,587 in 2016 to 54,291 in 2020.

“The homeless numbers on average have risen 37 percent since 2016 in LA County,” said Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy. “Through the hard work of our staff and collaborative efforts with our incredible partners, the City of Palmdale has seen an 11 percent reduction in our homeless count. We are committed to invest in successful strategies to assist those in need and raise the overall quality of life in our community.”
