We're committed to providing everyone with equal access to our services. We pledge to develop and maintain customer accessibility in our:

Online services and communications technology
To ensure our online systems and communications technologies are accessible we've adopted:
- Washington State (OCIO) policy 188 (ocio.wa.gov)

Reporting technology accessibility issues
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're experiencing difficulty accessing:
- Information on our website
- Online services (such as renew your tabs)
- Electronic documents and forms
- Multimedia (audio and video)
We will be glad to assist you in gaining access or providing an alternative format. Please provide the following information:
- The nature of your accessibility needs.
- The website, online service, electronic document, or multimedia you're trying to access.

PDF documents and accessibility
For best results, you'll want to open any DOL forms or documents with Acrobat Reader DC. Most reader plug-ins included in modern web browsers don't have the same capabilities as Acrobat Reader DC. Viewing a PDF with the browser plug-in could make the document:
- Appear broken
- Be missing functionality
- Not be viewable at all
You can set the reader your browser uses, check with your browser manufacturer to find out how. Get the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.
Using PDFs with a screen reader
For more information on using PDFs with a screen reader, go to Adobe's Accessibility features page.
Conducting business with your service animal
Your service animal may go with you into a Licensing Office. If your animal poses a direct threat to the health or safety of other people, you must remove them from the office.
Getting a driver license if you are homebound
Customers who need a driver license must visit a driver licensing office location.
