CALIFORNIA - The DMV announced Thursday that it will be temporarily closing all offices, state-wide and halting all in-person services starting Friday, March 27.

All in-office appointments will be canceled. Online services will continue uninterrupted and DMV Kiosks around the state will remain open.

Instead, starting April 2, the DMV will offer virtual essential services. These servies will include complete vehicle title transfers and complex vehicle registration renewals. The DMV says it plans to expand these services as they continue to train staff. 

Those concerned about getting the California REAL ID should pospone their visit. The DMV says that the deadline to get a REAL ID has been extended to October 1, 2021. 

DMV’s customer service centers will continue to operate during normal business hours at 1-800-777-0133 or connecting via the live chat feature on the DMV website.

A seasonably hot beginning to the workweek for northern California, and hotter weather is in the short term forecast, with very little relief in the long term.
