DMV Helps Victims of Mendocino Complex Fires at Local Assistance Center
Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services free of charge to residents impacted by the Mendocino Complex Fires at a Local Assistance Center in Lucerene. The temporary center opens at 10 a.m. today.
Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for wildfire victims in Lake and Mendocino counties, 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.

The DMV is one of several state and local agencies working together to provide services at this one-stop help center for residents impacted by the Mendocino Complex Fires.
The DMV reminds customers that many transactions can be completed without visiting a field office, including vehicle registration and driver license renewals, and Californians can save time by booking an appointment and filling out the driver license application online before they visit a field office.
