DMV Helps San Diego County Fire Survivors at Local Assistance Center
Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services free of charge to residents impacted by the Lilac wildfire at the newly established Local Assistance Center at 700 Eucalyptus Avenue in Vista. The temporary center opens today at 9 a.m.
Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for wildfire victims in San Diego County, which allows them to replace, at no cost, the following items if damaged due to the fire: 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 process a change of address. These services also are available at local DMV field offices.
