DMV Helps Napa Earthquake Victims at Local Assistance Center
SACRAMENTO — The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is committed to helping Napa area residents impacted by last month's 6.0 magnitude earthquake by offering a limited number of services at a local assistance center set up at 310 First Street in Napa. The center will be in operation during the following days and times:
|September 8-12||September 13|
|11 a.m. to 7 p.m.||10 a.m. to 4 p.m.|
DMV employees are available to provide customers with duplicate driver licenses, identification cards, registration, title and disabled placards. In addition, staff can assist with change of address requests, substitute plates, vehicle disposal and print-outs of driver records and registrations.
Beginning Monday, September 15, 2014, customers will be able to visit the newly renovated DMV Napa field office when it reopens to the public at 8 a.m. It is located at 2550 Napa Valley Corporate Drive in Napa.
The California Office of Emergency Services activated the temporary assistance center following the August 24, 2014 earthquake that injured as many as 200 people, knocked out power to tens of thousands of people and caused heavy damage to at least 100 buildings in Napa, Sonoma, and Solano counties.
