Mariposa DMV Field Office Closes Due To Detwiler Fire
Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is alerting customers that the Mariposa field office at 5264 Highway 49 has temporarily closed because of the Detwiler Fire.
A mandatory evacuation order was issued for the area July 18. The office will not reopen until the order has been lifted and it is safe for people to return.
Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for victims of wildfires in Mariposa County, which allows them to replace at no cost the following items if damaged by the fires: duplicate driver licenses, identification cards, vehicle registration and title, and disabled person parking placards. In addition, fire victims can acquire substitute license plates and stickers, vehicle disposal paperwork, driver record printouts and they can process a change of address.
Customers are advised to visit field offices in Merced, Madera, Sonora, Fresno North or Turlock for their DMV inquiries.
The DMV reminds customers that online services may save them a trip to a field office. By visiting www.dmv.ca.gov, they can renew their vehicle registration and driver license, complete a change of address, request a driver record, and schedule an appointment.
