STAMFORD — The Department of Motor Vehicles on Henry Street will reopen its doors on Tuesday.
The DMV on Friday began accepting up to 150 online requests per day.
Beginning Tuesday, the physical location, at 137 Henry St., will open and additional services will be available by appointment.
DMV Deputy Commissioner Tony Guerrera said the department had to reopen the Stamford DMV Express office “after receiving notice that The WorkPlace would be unable to continue operations.” The office was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Services offered at the Stamford location include:
Driver’s License Renewals
Learner’s Permit (duplicates and name changes only)
Non-Driver ID Card (renewals, duplicates, name changes)
Registrations (renewals, duplicates and name changes only)
Disabled Parking Permits (new, renewals and replacements)
“I am pleased the Stamford DMV branch office will be allowed to reopen and even expand service capabilities,” said state Sen. Carlo Leone, D-Stamford, chair of the Transportation Committee. “The Stamford office was temporarily shut down due to the pandemic crisis, but the local vendor was unable to continue services creating the risk of imminent shutdown. However, our local delegation and the partnership with DMV allowed for a seamless transition to re-open the facility.”
State Sen. Alex Kasser, D-Greenwich, vice chair of the Transportation Committee, said he is glad the state government responded to the needs of the community.
“When we reached out and asked DMV to make services available in Stamford, they listened,” he said.
