OMV reminds guests that facial coverings and social distancing are required at all OMV locations. "Louisiana residents should only visit OMV field offices if it's absolutely necessary. Our online services are always open and we encourage guests to visit expresslane.org before going to a field office," stated OMV Commissioner Karen St. Germain.

The LA Wallet app, Louisiana's legal digital driver's license, allows eligible customers to renew their current driver's license and request a duplicate driver's license. The LA Wallet app is free and available for both Apple and Android devices. Additionally, customers can utilize the services provided by Public Tag Agents and Auto Title Companies in their area. The OMV is asking customers who must complete in-person business to visit OMV offices that are open by appointment only if possible.
