DMV will end extra hour on Mondays and Fridays
DMV is ending its pilot of longer office hours at five Portland-area offices effective Sept. 1, 2011. DMV offered an extra hour of business on Mondays and Fridays at five offices in the Portland area from November 2010 until this month to see how many customers would visit from 5 to 6 PM.
"We wanted to find out how many people would choose to visit a DMV office outside of normal business hours," DMV Field Services Manager Stephanie Miles said. "It turns out that few people visited at the later times, so we couldn’t justify the extended hour."
As of Sept. 1, these offices will return to their former hours of 8 AM to 5 PM weekdays, except Wednesdays when they open at 9 AM:
- North Portland, 8260 N Interstate Ave
- Northeast Portland, 1836 NE 82nd Ave
- Southeast Portland, 8710 SE Powell Blvd
- Gladstone, 10 82nd Dr
- Gresham, 2222 E Powell Blvd
