Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services free of charge to residents impacted by the Klamathon Fire at a Local Assistance Center in Yreka. The temporary center opens Monday, July 16, at 9 a.m.

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for wildfire victims in Siskiyou 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.
