Motor Vehicle Department Releases New Holiday Hours

By Ernie Bertothy, Contributor

WETHERSFIELD – All Department of Motor Vehicles offices will close to the public on Dec. 23 at 3 p.m. and not re-open until Dec. 28, at 8 a.m.

The closing combines both the holiday observance of Christmas, the unpaid furlough time required of all state employees and the regular weekend shutdown of DMV offices.

DMV is advising customers early so that they can plan any necessary visits around this closing time.  With DMV having staggered operating times, these holiday closings and state-required unpaid furlough create a string of consecutive days that the agency does not operate.

While the offices will not be open for transactions, the web site and the automated phone system will be available to obtain information, DMV officials said.

Information about the regular hours of specific DMV offices can be found on the agency web site a or through the DMV telephone center at 860-263-5700 in the Greater Hartford area and 800-842-8222 for the remainder of the state.

Through the website and phone center, customers can find specific information 24 hours a day on a non-driver identification, change of address and change of name.  In addition, they have details regarding vehicle tax questions, records information, forms, emissions, inspections, operator’s licenses, titles and registrations and directions to DMV branch offices and photo license centers.

They also supply details on boating registrations, handicapped driver training, commercial vehicle safety, and instructions on how to file a complaint against a dealer or repairer.
