SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego drivers will have more opportunities to take care of driver’s license renewals and vehicle-related needs thanks to longer hours at California Department of Motor Vehicles offices.

Starting Monday, 69 offices will be open for customers at 7 a.m., four days a week. On Wednesdays, the offices will open at 9 a.m.

The DMV is offering extended service due to the high demand for Real ID compliant drivers licenses.

The early hours will be available in San Diego County at the following DMV locations:

  • El Cajon
  • Oceanside
  • Poway
  • San Diego (Hillcrest)
  • San Diego (Clairemont)
  • San Ysidro

The Chula Vista DMV office has had extended hours since last summer.

Saturday service is also available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Chula Vista, Poway, and Clairemont.
