DMV recommends that customers avoid long lines just before and after closure
The Albany DMV field office will be closed Wednesday, June 19, through Friday, June 28, for repairs and updates to the interior. The office will reopen Monday, July 1, with its normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, except Wednesdays when the office opens at 9 a.m. instead of 8. The office is located at 2242 Santiam Highway SE.
The Albany office has not had significant remodeling or repairs since DMV moved into the location in 1994.
Customer wait times tend to be longer on the days just before and just after weekends and other closures. DMV suggests that people who need to do business at the Albany DMV try to visit before June 18 or after July 1. In addition, the week of July 1 may be busy at all DMV offices because the Fourth of July is on Thursday and all state offices will close for the holiday.
DMV also suggests that you first check www.OregonDMV.com
before visiting a field office in person. Customers can complete some DMV business online or find out how to make their visit as efficient as possible.
