CNH due in 2020: renewal becomes mandatory this month

Redaction 12 January 2021

The mandatory renewal of the National Driver's License was suspended by the federal government last year amid the Covid-19 pandemic. But that period is over and the CNHs that expired in 2020 should be regularized starting this month.

São Paulo residents will be able to request the service through the portal or through the Poupatempo Digital application, available for Android and iOS.


And be careful: the driver cannot have any type of block on the chart, such as suspension or revocation, to do the process online.

After confirming the data, simply schedule and perform the medical examination at the accredited clinic indicated by the system.

The next step is to pay the emission fee. Guidelines for accessing CNH Digital will be sent by email.

Remember that the digital version has the same validity as the physical document and is available in the Digital Transit Card application.


To avoid displacement, the citizen still has the option of receiving the CNH at home, delivered by the Post Office.

According to the schedule defined by the National Traffic Council, documents with an expiration date of January 2020 may be renewed until January 31, 2021. For those due in February of last year, the renewal may occur until the next 28 February; and so on.
