SACRAMENTO –California’s Department of Motor Vehicles announced late Thursday (March 26) it will be temporarily closing all of its field offices across the state today in response to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
All in-office appointments are being canceled for now, and customers are asked to check the DMV’s website for future appointment availability.
The DMV plans to shift their field office operations online and reopen virtually on April 2.
Customers will be able to complete vehicle title transfers and renew vehicle registration renewals by visiting their virtual field offices from April 2 — and will have more options as the DMV expands its online functions.
The deadline for REAL ID compliance has been pushed back to Oct. 1, 2021, due to the coronavirus outbreak. The original deadline was set for October 2020.
