Driver licensing offices will close for Thanksgiving

November 18, 2010

Department of Licensing driver licensing offices will be closed on November 25 and 26 for the Thanksgiving holiday. Offices normally open on Saturdays will reopen on November 27, but will be closed as usual on Monday, Nov. 29. Offices normally open Monday through Friday will reopen on Nov. 29. You can check the hours of operation, and in many cases the current office wait times, on the Office Locations page on the DOL Internet website.

DOL officials expect driver licensing offices to be very busy in the days following this two-day closure, making this a great time to try one of the many online driver license service options available online at the DOL website. If you need to renew your driver license or ID card, or get a copy of your driving record, you can skip the trip to a driver licensing office and do it online.    

If you do have to visit a driver licensing office in the days after this holiday, the following video has helpful tips to help make your trip to a driver licensing office as efficient as possible:
