DMV reacts to surge of COVID-19 cases

January 24, 2022

Most chairs at the Georgetown Department of Motor Vehicles are off limits to minimize customer contact. Because of the surge in COVID-19 cases and anticipated staffing shortages, the DMV has enacted several changes. In an effort to avoid crowding inside lobbies, a text messaging notification feature went into effect Jan. 4. DMV customers can wait in their vehicles until a text message invites them into the lobby.

In addition, all late fees for vehicle registration and driver license renewals are being waived until further notice. Customers are urged to utilize the online portal to conduct more than 20 services, including driver’s license and vehicle registration renewals. Customers still needing to visit a DMV facility should expect longer-than-usual wait times.
