Kalispell Driver Exam Station Begins Appointment Scheduling
Motor Vehicle Division Administrator Brenda Nordlund announced Thursday that, beginning May 24, the Kalispell driver exam station will switch to scheduled customer appointments.
“Kalispell is the busiest exam station in northwestern Montana,” Nordlund said. “We strive to provide quality customer service in a time-efficient and positive manner. Appointment scheduling will help us provide better service to each and every customer.”
According to Nordlund, feedback has been very positive from customers who use appointment scheduling in the Billings, Bozeman, Columbus, Glendive, Great Falls, Hardin, Helena, Miles City, Missoula, Red Lodge, Sidney, Superior and Townsend areas.
The majority of appointments may be scheduled online. Appointments such as knowledge and road tests, out-of-state license transfers, license renewals, Stage I and II vehicle identification number (VIN) inspections and completion of some types of the driver education programs may be scheduled by going online to www.doj.mt.gov/driving. Appointments for Stage III VIN inspections must be scheduled through the MVD Customer Service Center at 1-866-450-8034.
Customers are encouraged to check the Driver Services section of the Department of Justice website, which offers details about required documentation, fees and other important information people need to know before scheduling their appointments.
“We know that our customers are busy, and many have to take time off work to come to our offices. As we’ve seen at other scheduled exam stations, it saves people time and helps everything run smoothly when they arrive at an appointment with everything they need,” Kristine Thatcher, Driver License Bureau Chief, said.
People who do not have computer access should call the MVD Customer Service Center toll free at 1-866-450-8034 to schedule an appointment.
