DMV Helps Helena Fire Victims at Local Assistance Center

Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services to residents affected by the Helena Fire in Trinity County at an assistance center at Mountain Chapel Church, 60 Oak Ridge Road in Weaverville. The temporary center opened at noon today.

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for victims of the Helena Fire, which allows them to replace at no cost the following items if damaged due to the blaze: duplicate driver licenses, identification cards, vehicle registration and title, and disabled person parking placards. In addition, the fire victims can acquire substitute license plates and stickers, vehicle disposal paperwork, and driver record printouts, and they can process a change of address. These services also are available at local DMV field offices.
