DMV recommends customers avoid long lines just before and after closure
The Hermiston DMV field office will be closed Wednesday, June 19, through Friday, June 28, for repairs and updates to the interior of the facility.
The office is scheduled to reopen Monday, July 1, with its normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, except Wednesdays when the office has a 9 a.m. start time. The office is located at 945 SE Fourth St.
The Hermiston office has not had significant remodeling or repairs since DMV moved into the location in 1983.
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 Hermiston 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.
