In response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Washington state, the Department of Licensing is temporarily closing its driver licensing offices and other service counters to the public starting Tuesday, March 17. DOL employees will be working to implement social distancing measures in these offices to protect the health of customers and workers while delivering critical services to the public.
Governor Jay Inslee signed a statewide emergency proclamation regarding efforts to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, approving the temporary suspension of 2 provisions in state law. This will allow us to take the following actions to promote social distancing. These waivers are in effect 30 days from their effective dates unless renewed.
We expect to resume business at our license service offices Monday, March 23. But be prepared for the possibility of extended closures.
While most vehicle and vessel licensing offices remain open across the state, there are some with closures, limited services, or adjusted hours of operation. Please visit our Vehicle licensing office locator for office hours and locations before visiting an office in-person.
In the meantime, many of our services are available online.
