  • DMV offices are not open on Weekends
    Most offices are open Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
    DMV office hours were standardized in 2012 to reduce costs. The last two DMV offices that were open on Saturdays were moved to a Monday thru Friday schedule on July 2, 2012. Some DMV offices still have reduced hours or are open only on certain days of the week. Please check our office Web pages before heading out to be sure that they are open on the day and time that you want to visit.
  • The Stayton DMV office has moved
    Now located in nearby Sublimity
    As of September 2nd, the DMV office previously located at 144 E Water Street in Stayton has moved to 11656 Sublimity Road, Suite 400, in Sublimity near Exit 12 for Golf Club Road. The office's business hours will remain the same, 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday. The former office space was no longer large enough to serve the community so a more suitable location was found.
  • Winter storms can impact the services available at DMV offices
    Inclement weather often curtails drive tests and forces office closures 
    During severe weather conditions drive tests may have to be canceled or delayed, and traction devices (chains, studded tires, etc.) may be required. Also, offices may have to close if staff cannot safely reach the facility or if there are power outages. Be sure to call the office you plan to visit before heading out.

    Time for motorist to be on high alert

It can take weeks to obtain some of the documents you may need to meet the applicable laws, so don't wait until your license, permit or ID card expires.
