DHSMV Offices Set to Close, Officials Push Online Services

June 6th, 2008 by flanews

Motor vehicle offices across the state will close down because of budget cuts. The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is losing 15 million dollars in this years budget cuts. The department will avoid layoffs, but will have to close 13 drivers license offices. The departments spokeswoman Ann Nucatola said they dont expect service to suffer much.

Were working hard to make sure the impact to our customers is minimal. We have moved some of our folks to different locations to help pick up some of the extra traffic that were going to be expecting at those locations, said Nucatola.

The department encourages drivers to use its online services or make an appointment before stopping by any of the remaining offices.
