Customers advised to avoid lines on Days just before and after DMV closures
The Oregon DMV headquarters and all local DMV offices will be closed Friday, May 20.
The closure is the last of 10 statewide mandatory unpaid “furlough” days for employees scheduled for the two-year state budget period that will end June 30.
Customer waiting times tend to be longer on the days just before and after office closures, so DMV suggests that customers try to do business by mail or online, if possible, or plan their visits to DMV before Thursday, May 19, or after Monday, May 23.
DMV also will be closed Monday, May 30, for the Memorial Day holiday, so people should keep that in mind when planning visits to DMV offices.
Online DMV services include most passenger vehicle registration renewals, changes of address, and notice of vehicle sale. To access DMV’s online services go to www.OregonDMV.com/online.
DMV offices will reopen on their regularly scheduled days and times after the furlough day. For a complete list of DMV offices and their business hours, go to http://www.oregondmv.com/.
