WISCONSIN — The Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced Wednesday that they would be limiting in-person services beginning March 23.

On Friday, March 20, all DMV Customer Service Centers will be closed for deep cleaning and modification of office space to maximize social distancing.

When the offices reopen on the 23rd, they will not offer all the services. Services not offered will include driver's license and CDL renewals.

According to the DMV, all licenses and CDL's that expire during the public health emergency will have an automatic 60-day extension. If officers pull you over, the police driving record will show that 60-day extension.

Additionally, the DMV has canceled all driver's tests until further notice. Administrative Suspension hearings will be offered by telephone or by paper, not in-person.

In-person services will be appointment only. The services still available are getting new driver's licenses and issuing identification cards.

To make an appointment, customers can use the Driver License Guide.

You can also use this guide to begin the paperwork and submit it electronically. Customers with questions may call Driver Services at (608) 264-7447.
