DMV Opens Second Temporary Location to Assist Valley Fire Victims

Now Open: Disaster Recovery Center in Clearlake         

Sacramento – Valley Fire victims living in Lake, Napa, and Sonoma Counties can now receive California Department of Motor Vehicle assistance at a second temporary Disaster Recovery Center located at the DMV satellite office located at 14884 Olympic Drive in Clearlake. The center opens today, October 2, 2015, and will remain in operation until further notice. 

“So many of our customers have been severely impacted by this devastating wildfire and we want them to know that we are here to help them get duplicate driver licenses, identification cards, registration, vehicle titles and disabled placards,” said DMV Director Jean Shiomoto. “We hope that by providing this convenient service, our customers will have more time to address other issues caused these destructive flames.”

The DMV also continues to offer services at a Disaster Recovery Center located at the Senior Center in Middletown, which has been in operation since September 19.
