Reminder: DC DMV Will Resume Full Walk-in Services on July 19

Beginning on Monday, July 19, the DC DMV will offer walk-in appointments at all service centers. As part of the transition period, the DMV is still honoring appointments that were scheduled for July 17 or earlier; no additional online appointments will be offered after that time. In the update announcing the resumption of walk-ins, the DMV also announced that the grace period for IDs and driver’s licenses has been extended until Sept. 9.

The DMV’s Southwest Service Center at 95 M Street NW is also offering walk-in appointments on the next two Saturdays (July 11 and July 18), from 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The DC DMV noted that the grace period for expired inspections and vehicle registrations ended back on June 1 and will not be extended. For those who need to get their vehicles inspected, the city’s inspection station in Southwest is offering extended walk-in hours on Saturdays in addition to their usual summer hours. There is also a self-service kiosk in Takoma that is open 24/7.

As always, we continue to encourage dealers to avail themselves of the DC DMV’s Online Services Portal wherever possible.
