Orleans County DMV Closed July 22-July 26 for Office Renovations

Orleans County Clerk Nadine Hanlon today announced that the Orleans County Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will be closed Monday, July 22nd through Friday, July 26th to complete Phase II of the DMV office renovations.  In addition, beginning Friday July 19, the DMV will cease issuing New Permits, Enhanced and Real IDs, and Licenses Renewals that require a photo, as the camera will be temporarily removed at that time.

During the week of closure, DMV staff will continue processing dealer transactions and items that are either mailed to the office or deposited in the drop box located outside the main entrance of the County Office Building.   

“We apologize for the inconvenience, but these are necessary renovations that will upgrade our office for both customers and employees,” said Hanlon.  “If you have transactions that cannot wait, please visit us during the next two weeks or take advantage of the mail-in or drop box options that many people have found to be very convenient.”

According to Hanlon, the work done in Phase I – which was completed June 12 – and Phase II includes repainting the office, installing new floors, updates to the back office, and a new back counter for customers that has outlets for charging cellphones and hooks to hang belongings while completing their paperwork.  The office will have ADA compliant counters.

“When we reopen on Monday, July 29, I think our residents will like the changes we have made,” said Hanlon, who noted the camera for licenses will not be available until Tuesday, July 30.  “I want to thank everyone in advance for their patience while this work is completed.”
