CALIFORNIA - The DMV is the latest agency to announce changes to help protect customers and employees from the spreading of the coronavirus.

Beginning immediately, behind-the-wheel driving tests have been canceled for one month and service transactions that require an in-office visit will be by appointment only.

Additionally, the DMV has asked law enforcement to exercise discretion when seeing driver license and vehicle registration records that expire in the next 60-days. DMV took this action so vulnerable people who need to update paperwork can avoid field offices.

Normal walk-in office hours will be suspended and open to appointment-only on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with Wednesday office hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

What would require an in-office visit?

  • Applications for a new driver license or REAL ID
  • 70 years of age and older, who are required to take a knowledge test
  • Individuals who are required to renew in the office (last DMV visit was 15 years prior)
  • Individuals subject to vision testing
  • Individuals with complex driving history

The agency is encouraging Californians to take advantage of the dozens of services offered online to help keep the in-office visits low. You can find links to all those services HERE.
