Sacramento –The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced today the re-opening of the Hayward Field Office located at 150 Jackson Street and the Glendale Field office at 1335 W. Glenoaks Blvd will open to the public on April 25, 2011. Both offices had been closed since August 2010 for renovations and remained closed in the past months due to staffing issues.
