Customers should avoid long lines before and after weekend
Oregon DMV Headquarters and all local DMV offices will be closed Friday, March 23.
The closure is the third of 10 statewide mandatory unpaid "furlough" days for state employees scheduled for the 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, March 22, or after Monday, March 26.
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, May 25. For more information about the statewide mandatory furloughs, visit the Department of Administrative Services’ website at www.Oregon.gov/DAS. For a complete list of state agency closures, visit http://oregon.gov/furlough_closures.shtml.
