Nevada DMV Urges Use Of Kiosks And Online Services To Avoid After Holiday ‘Black Monday’ Rush Carson City Nevada News

CARSON CITY – The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is asking walk-in customers to use online services or kiosks next Monday or to postpone an office visit until later in the week.

The Monday after Thanksgiving has traditionally been the busiest day of the year for the department, which has led some staff to call it “Black Monday.”

DMV offices will be closed four days from Thanksgiving Day, November 25 through Sunday November 28. Customers who do not have an appointment will face much longer wait times than usual.

Meetings are privileged. Customers who have an appointment and cannot meet it should cancel the appointment.

“Enjoy your vacation and don’t get stuck in the long wait times early next week,” said Julie Butler, director of DMV. “We have more ways than ever to do business online or at a kiosk. “

The ministry’s website offers about 20 online transactions, including address changes and personalized plate orders. As part of a new feature added this year, motorists who purchase a car from a Nevada dealership can choose one of 30 charitable license plates when registering the car online.

The agency has 41 self-service kiosks in supermarkets, other partner locations and DMV offices across the state. Kiosks can process and print a registration renewal certificate and sticker on site. AAA also offers vehicle registration and disability plate services at five locations.

Customers should also avoid the DMV offices after the other upcoming vacations. Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall on a Saturday this year. DMV offices will be closed on the Friday preceding these holidays, resulting in longer wait times the following week.
