Mariposa DMV Field Office Reopens to Public after Fire Evacuation

Local Assistance Center held for Fire Victims on Tuesday

Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is alerting customers that the Mariposa field office at 5264 Highway 49 reopened for business this morning after temporarily closing last week because of the Detwiler Fire.

The DMV also will offer limited services to residents affected by the wildfire at an assistance center at Mariposa High School, 5074 Old Highway N., from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 25.  

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 blaze: 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.
