RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Department of Motor Vehicles announced they will open an additional five customer service locations starting on May 26.

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) had previously reopened nine customer service centers statewide on May 18, which were two less than originally planned due to certain regions delaying the first phase of the state’s reopening plan.

The locations will be open for limited, appointment-only services. According to an update on the department’s website, “operational adjustments are being made for social distancing.”

The following locations will be open Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.:

  • Lynchburg (3236 Odd Fellows Road, Lynchburg, VA 24501)
  • Newport News (12730 Patrick Henry Drive, Newport News, VA 23602)
