Sacramento –The new California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Anaheim Driver’s License Processing Center (DLPC) at 3170 West Lincoln Ave. will open Monday, January 4 at 8 a.m.

The Anaheim DLPC will only handle driver’s license and identification card transactions. There are 62 employees assigned to the new location and 33 service windows to help customers complete their DMV transactions when an office visit is required. The Anaheim office replaces a similar office in Stanton, which closed in August 2019.

To protect customers and employees, the DMV requires everyone who enters the DMV to wear a face covering, physically distance and have their temperature checked. To best serve customers and maintain appropriate distance, the number of people allowed in the office is limited, chairs are appropriately spaced and service windows have plexiglass dividers.

Nearly all Californians can now renew their driver’s license online – even if the renewal notice states an office visit is required. The DMV recommends that customers use its online services, expanded virtual services and other service channels to complete transactions, including eligible driver’s license and vehicle registration renewals. Information about online services can be found at Customers can also use the Service Advisor on the DMV website to learn their options to complete DMV tasks.

Before visiting a DMV office for a new REAL ID, customers should fill out the online application, upload their documents, and bring their confirmation code and documents with them to an office at their convenience. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will begin REAL ID enforcement October 1, 2021. More information is available at
