DMV Helps Fire Victims at Additional Local Assistance Centers

Opening Tomorrow in Lake and Mendocino Counties 

Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services free of charge to residents affected by the Sulphur and Redwood Valley fires at assistance centers in Clearlake and Ukiah. Both centers open tomorrow morning.  

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for victims of wildfires in Lake and Mendocino counties, 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.
