Offices in Hillcrest and San Marcos reopened earlier this month, though confusion over eligible customers led to long lines and frustration.

The reopen offices will help those with an appointment for services covering:

  • Paying registration for a vehicle impounded because of registration-related issues
  • Reinstating a suspended or revoked driver license
  • Applying for a reduced-fee or no-fee identification card
  • Processing commercial driver license transactions
  • Applying for a disabled person parking placards
  • Adding an ambulance certificate or firefighter endorsement to a driver license
  • Verifying a transit training document to drive a transit bus.
  • Processing DMV Express customers for REAL ID transactions, if time and space allow

The DMV is still encouraging anyone who is eligible to complete their services online to do so through the agency's website.

DMV officials said employees will maintain proper social distancing as they serve customers.
