No More DMV on Saturdays

If you have pending business with any California DMV office, you will now need to go on weekdays because they have eliminated Saturday service this month.

Due to the ongoing state budget crisis, the DMV has fired 700 employees, crippling its Saturday operations.

Before this, 53 California Department of Motor Vehicles offices are open one Saturday morning every month. Since Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger ordered the "layoff of thousands of part-time employees, limited overtime and imposed a hiring freeze," many government and government-funding-dependent offices have been suffering.

To avoid the expected long wait, schedule your DMV appointments online or over the phone before your visit.
