Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) today held a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Grass Valley field office. The facility, located at 890 Sutton Way, opened February 26, 2018.

The approximately 8,000-square foot building sits on the site of the former Grass Valley office and offers more parking and better circulation in the parking lot. The new office has a larger lobby, more seating and a separate driver license testing area. The facility incorporates solar panels and other energy-efficient features to achieve Zero Net Energy to comply with the Governor’s Executive Order B-18-12. This means the office will produce as much or more energy as it uses.

Since the office opened, staff has served nearly 5,000 customers.

The former office closed in August 2015, and employees served customers at a temporary site.  

The DMV reminds customers it offers many online services at, which will save them a trip to a DMV field office. A few of the convenient options include renewing a vehicle registration and driver license, completing a change of address, requesting a driver record and making an appointment.
