Customers advised to plan for office closures
Oregon DMV Headquarters and all local DMV offices will be closed Friday, September 16.
The closure is the first of 10 statewide mandatory unpaid "furlough" days for employees scheduled for the state's 2011-13 budget period.
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, September 15, or after Monday, September 19.
People also can do some business with DMV online any time. 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/.
The next statewide furlough is scheduled for Friday, November 25 – the day after Thanksgiving.
