FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 1, 2019
Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services free of charge to residents impacted by flooding in Sonoma County at a Local Assistance Center in Guerneville. The temporary center opens at noon Sunday, March 3, at 16390 Main Street.
Governor Gavin Newsom issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for Sonoma County residents impacted by severe storms, which allows them to replace the following items at no cost: duplicate driver licenses, identification cards, vehicle registration and title, and disabled person parking placards. In addition, flood survivors can acquire substitute license plates and stickers, vehicle disposal paperwork, driver record printouts and process a change of address. These services are also available at local DMV field offices.
|Local Assistance Center||Dates and Hours of Operation|
|Old Bank of America Building||March 3-9|
|16390 Main Street||Sunday||Noon-6 p.m.|
|Guerneville, CA 95446||Monday-Saturday||8 a.m.-6 p.m.|
The DMV is one of several state, local and federal agencies working together to provide services at this one-stop help center for Sonoma County residents impacted by flooding.
The DMV reminds customers that many transactions can be completed without visiting a field office, including vehicle registration and driver license renewals, and changing an address. Californians also can save time by filling out the driver license application online before they visit a field office. For more information on all online services visit here.
