Redmond DMV office to reopen three days a week after nearly six-month closure

Oregon DMV

SALEM, Ore. (KTVZ) -- After a nearly six-month closure, due to staffing shortages, the Redmond DMV office will reopen Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays starting Nov. 15 at the office located at 3835 SW 21st Place, Suite 101 in Redmond, the agency announced Tuesday.

Hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The office will remain closed Mondays and Fridays.

Staff shortages resulted in a temporary reduction in service days and hours in several DMV offices statewide.

“We recommend going online to DMV2U more than ever,” DMV Administrator Amy Joyce said. “Every time you need a DMV service, see if you can get it done at We’ve added over two dozen services in the past three years.”

Some services, like adding the Real ID option to your license, must be done in person. Before you go to DMV, make sure your local office is open by visiting the office’s page at

“DMV has been experiencing the same shortage of applicants for job openings as other employers statewide and nationwide,” Joyce said. “The people working at your local DMV live in your community — and could use your help.”
