Thursday, January 21, 2016

(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Friday, January 22, 2016, all District of Columbia Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) locations will close at Noon due to the inclement weather.

DC DMV will reschedule road tests appointments and  all scheduled ticket hearings that occur after 12pm. Customers who have vehicle inspection appointments scheduled after 12pm tomorrow are encouraged to come to the Inspection Station before noon. Inspection appointments will not be rescheduled.  Also, customers with Limited Purpose appointments after Noon on Friday can visit the DMV Service Center on Thursday, January 28th or Friday, January 29th between 9am – 3pm.

If in-person services are required, DC DMV encourages customers to plan ahead and “Know Before You Go” prior to visiting a Service Center as customer volume is high after closings. Additionally, DC DMV has more than 45 online services, enabling customers to “skip the in-person trip,” including:


·       Renew vehicle registration (can only be done online or by mail; no in-person visit)

·       Obtain duplicate vehicle registration
