DMV Helps Shasta County Fire Victims at Local Assistance Center
Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services free of charge to residents impacted by the Carr Fire at a Local Assistance Center in Redding. The temporary center opens Thursday, August 2, at 9 a.m.
Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for wildfire victims in Shasta 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.
