Services Limited at Driver License Stations Sept. 19-22
HELENA – From Sept. 19-22, most driver licensing stations throughout Montana will be closed, while others will be open for limited hours and offer only license renewals and duplicates.
Dean Roberts, administrator of the Motor Vehicle Division of the Department of Justice, said that driver examiners and aides from around the state will be in Helena next week for training on recent changes to Montana motor-vehicle laws.
As a result, Roberts said that no satellite stations will be open Sept. 19-22. Driver-licensing stations in Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Dillon, Great Falls, Havre, Helena, Kalispell, Libby, Missoula, Polson, Sidney and Stevensville will be open for reduced hours, and the limited staff will only be available to assist people needing to renew or get a duplicate of their driver licenses.
The following services will not be available Sept. 19-22:
- tests for regular, commercial or motorcycle licenses
- new applications for identity cards and driver licenses
- VIN inspections
- endorsements or restrictions on existing licenses
“The 2005 Legislature made a number of changes to laws affecting Montana drivers,” Roberts said. “We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding as we train staff members.”
Full services and the normal driver licensing station schedule will resume on Friday Sept. 23.
