Based on the District’s assessment of the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, all District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) locations will be open on Wednesday, October 31, 2012. Due to the weather and previous closures, late fees on ticket payments occurring Oct 29th - Nov 2nd will be waived; late inspection fees occurring on Oct 30th-Nov 2nd will be waived and vehicle impoundment storage fees occurring Oct 29th-Nov 2nd will be waived. The waiving of these various fees will ensure DMV is not overwhelmed with customers during the rest of this week.
