CARSON CITY – The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is asking walk-in customers to use online services or kiosks next Monday or to postpone an office visit until later in the week.
The Monday after Thanksgiving has traditionally been the busiest day of the year for the department, which has led some staff to refer to it as “Black Monday.”
DMV’s offices will be closed four days from Thanksgiving Day, November 25 through Sunday, November 28. Customers who do not have an appointment will face much longer wait times than usual.
Meetings are privileged. Customers who have an appointment and cannot meet it should cancel the appointment.
âEnjoy your vacation and don’t get stuck in the long wait times early next week,â said DMV director Julie Butler. âWe have more ways than ever to do business online or at a kiosk. “
The ministry’s website offers two dozen online transactions, including address changes and personalized plaque orders. As part of a new feature added this year, motorists who purchase a car from a Nevada dealership can choose one of 30 charitable license plates when registering the car online.
The agency has 41 self-service kiosks in supermarkets, other partner sites and DMV offices across the state. Kiosks can process and print a registration renewal certificate and sticker on site. AAA also offers vehicle registration and disability plate services at five locations.
Visit the DMV’s website at dmvnv.com to find online services, kiosk locations, and ways to avoid waiting before you walk into an office.
Customers should also avoid DMV offices after other upcoming vacations. Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall on a Saturday this year. DMV offices will be closed on the Friday preceding these holidays, resulting in longer wait times the following week.
