Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on Tuesday signed an executive order to extend the expiration date of standard drivers licenses in the state.

Ducey said the order is intended to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19 by reducing the number of trips by residents, especially those over age 65 deemed most at-risk for the virus, to Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division offices.

Any standard license with an expiration date between March 1 and Dec. 31, 2020, will be extended by one year from its original expiration date.

As a result, all Arizona and municipal law enforcement officers as well as state government agencies, county and municipal governments, and election officials will accept Arizona driver license cards with expiration dates between March 1 and Dec. 31 2020 as valid identification for any purposes.
