Due to a recent increase in call volume, Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) customers seeking driver’s license reinstatement services can now contact the OMV Call Center until 6:30 pm on weeknights.

Reinstatement services through the OMV Call Center are now available by phone Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm by dialing (225) 925-6146 and selecting option three. Call center agents are only available to assist customers with driver’s license reinstatement services during the extended hours from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm.

“We’ve heard from our customers and want to meet their needs by adding additional hours to our reinstatement call center,” OMV Commissioner Karen St. Germain said. “Our team continues to tackle new challenges brought on from the COVID-19 pandemic and serve our valued customers in new ways.”
