Services Limited at Driver License Stations May 1-5
HELENA – From May 1-5, 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 in the new graduated driver licensing provisions that go into effect July 1 and changes to commercial driver licensing.
As a result, Roberts said that no satellite stations will be open May 1-5. Driver licensing stations in Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Dillon, Glasgow, Great Falls, Havre, Helena, Kalispell, Libby, Missoula, Polson, and Stevensville will be open for reduced hours, and 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 May 1-5:
- tests for regular, commercial or motorcycle licenses
- new applications for identity cards and driver licenses
- VIN inspections
- endorsements or restrictions on existing licenses
“It’s important that our staff around the state fully understand the latest laws and regulations as they go into effect,” Roberts said. “We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding while we provide the necessary training.”
Full services and the normal driver licensing station schedule will resume on Monday, May 8th.
