Secretary of State Branch Offices to Open June 1 (By Appointment Only)

The Secretary of State announced that beginning Monday, June 1, branch offices will be open for transactions not able to be completed online, but by appointment only.

Beginning the week of June 1, all 131 offices will be open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for appointment-only services. Transactions include:

  • Driver licenses and state ID transactions that must be done in person
  • Title transfers
  • Operator, CDL, chauffeur, mechanic and motorcycle testing
  • Seasonal commercial vehicle renewal

Branch staff will follow strict health and safety protocols, including wearing a mask, using desk shields, social distancing and more. A copy of the department’s reopening preparedness plan can be found here.

During the time when branch offices were closed, over 3,000 emergency appointments were made, many through MITA, for essential workers and businesses.

It is anticipated that there will be large demand by the public and that it could be difficult to get a same day appointment. In discussions with department staff, it was strongly encouraged that individuals go online and make an appointment 24 hours before you would like your appointment to occur. “Same Day” appointments can be booked 24 hours in advance.
