The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles announced late-Saturday that beginning Monday transactions will begin to be processed by mail.
County Clerks that operate DMV offices in the remaining 51 counties of the state are advised to follow the State DMV’s timeline and guidance for reopening.
For region’s that are in the first or second phase of reopening – CDL road testing will begin. Those tests will be conducted in a safe way.
Customers whose road tests were canceled because of COVID-19 will be given priority for rescheduling. DMV staff will begin outreach to those customers on June 1st.
Other limited in-person transactions will begin happening in state-run DMV offices by reservation.
“As New York State begins to reopen, the DMV has and will continue to adapt the way it does business to ensure public health and safety are protected,” said DMV Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder. “As regions advance to phase 3 of reopening, we will expand customer service options, like offering limited in-person transactions by reservation only. These new policies will allow us to meet the needs of our customers while keeping everyone safe.”
The hope is now that more types of services will restart. Especially as parts of the state enter the third phase.
