Seven Office of Motor Vehicles locations across Louisiana, including two in Acadiana, will begin appointment only services on Thursday, July 16, Commissioner Karen St. Germain has announced.

The scheduling is in an effort to increase efficiency and precautions related to the COVID-19 response.

The following offices will begin appointment only services on Thursday:

· Breaux Bridge
· Marksville (Tuesday-Thursday only)
· Opelousas
· Plaquemine
· Thibodaux
· Vivian
· West Monroe

Customers can schedule their appointment by selecting the "Book Appointment" icon located at www.expresslane.org. Customers will then be prompted to enter the required information before finalizing their appointment.

"This feature allows us to better serve our customers by shortening wait times and protecting them from possible exposure to COVID-19," said Commissioner St. Germain. A complete list of offices now offering online scheduling is on the Office of Motor Vehicles website.

Please be aware that masks are mandatory in most circumstances at OMV locations across the state. Similarly, Social Distancing is strongly encouraged for all OMV customers. All OMV offices will be complying with the capacity requirements associated with Phase Two of Louisiana Re-opening.

Customers are urged to continue utilizing the OMV website for available online services such as driver license renewals, identification card renewals, official driving records, and duplicate registrations.

Customers are also encouraged to check their driver license status by visiting www.expresslane.org regarding flags, blocks, suspensions or disqualifications. If a customer has flags on their record, they must clear those flags prior to obtaining any OMV services.

An up to date and complete listing of all open OMV locations and PTA offices can be found at the OMV website.

The Office of Motor Vehicles and the entire Department of Public Safety are working closely with state officials to ensure public safety remains a top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. The agency appreciates the public's cooperation and understanding during this unprecedented time.

Louisiana residents are encouraged to refer to the OMV website and social media pages for additional updates and announcements.
