Wisconsin DMV’s to Close for Deep Cleaning on Friday, Re-Open Monday with Limited In-Person Services

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will close all
DMV service centers in the state for a day later this week, and will begin
offering limited in-person services starting Monday to help prevent the spread
of COVID-19.

The DOT said in a news release Wednesday that all DMV’s
across the state will enact a one-day closure this Friday – March 20th
– to “deep clean each location and modify office space to allow additional
social distancing practices” when they reopen on Monday.

Starting on Monday (March 23rd), in-person services
at DMV’s in Wisconsin will be restricted, by appointment only, to issuing new
driver licenses and identification cards. Appointments can be made using the
Driver License Guide at wisconsindmv.gov/DLGuide. Customers who do not make an appointment,
will be assisted in order of their arrival at the DMV and when there is space
in the lobby to wait.

In addition, the DOT announced that driver licenses and CDLs
that expire during the public health emergency will be automatically extended
60 days and late fees will be waived. All driver skills tests are canceled as
of Wednesday, until further notice, and administrative suspension hearings will
be held over the phone or by paper, and not in person.
