DMV Helps Tubbs Fire Victims at Local Assistance Center  

Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services free of charge to residents affected by the Tubbs Fire at an assistance center at the Press Democrat Building, 427 Mendocino Avenue, in Santa Rosa. The temporary center opens Saturday at 9 a.m.

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for victims of wildfires in Sonoma County, which allows them to replace at no cost the following items if damaged due to 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, and driver record printouts, and they can process a change of address. These services are also available at local DMV field offices.
