State Department of Licensing offices close Monday for a furlough.
The licensing offices and other state agencies reopen Tuesday. The licensing agency has advised customers in need of driver’s license services to consider online service options.
The offices usually experience a rush after holidays and furlough days.
“Our previous temporary layoff days have taught us to expect longer-than-average wait times for several days following the temporary layoff,” Licensing Director Liz Luce said. “We expect the combination of the temporary layoff and the state holiday to significantly increase wait times in many offices.”
Customers can check the agency website to determine if a driver’s license or ID card can be renewed or replaced, if a driving record can be obtained, or vehicle tabs can be renewed.
If customers must visit a licensing office, the department has tools to help. Learn more about using office wait times and avoiding peak business hours on the agency’s YouTube channel.
