DMV SERVICE HOURS CHANGE FOR WELLS

Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) travel teams from the Elko office will be serving Wells motorists on a new schedule beginning June 18.  Driver license issues and renewals will be available at the Justice Court, 1510 Lake Ave. the third Tuesday of the months of June, September, December and March from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The switch to digitized driver licenses last month prompted the DMV to reevaluate the effectiveness of its travel teams.

“The benefits to digitized licenses are overwhelming,” DMV Director Ginny Lewis, said.  “The problem is some of the equipment isn’t portable.  The solution is to establish criteria that provides the best services to our customers, whether it’s at a fixed office or a travel site.”

According to Lewis, many motorists don’t have to go face-to-face with a DMV technician in order to renew their driver licenses.

“If the driver license renewal notice we sent you has an access code,” Lewis said, “you can renew your license in the comfort of your home by mail, by calling 877-DMV-7828 or by logging on to www.dmvnv.com.”
