SALEM, Ore. -

All Oregon DMV offices including DMV Headquarters will be closed for the statewide furlough on Friday, Jan. 18., and for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 21.

Customer waiting times tend to be longer on the days before and after DMV office closures, and this statewide furlough is in combination with the weekend and Monday closure for a national holiday.

DMV urges customers to do business by mail or online, if possible, or plan their visits to DMV before Thursday, Jan. 17, or after Tuesday, Jan. 22.

Friday’s closure is the eighth of 10 statewide mandatory unpaid furlough days for most state agencies scheduled for the two-year state budget cycle that ends in June 2013. The two remaining statewide furloughs are scheduled for April 19 and May 24.
