DMV helps fire survivors at local assistance centers

- The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is offering limited services free of charge to residents impacted by the Thomas, Creek and Rye wildfires at the newly established Local Assistance Centers in Ventura and Los Angeles.

The temporary centers open tomorrow.

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued an emergency proclamation authorizing fee and/or penalty waivers for wildfire survivors in Ventura and Los Angeles counties, which allows them to replace at no cost the following items if damaged due to the fire: duplicate driver licenses, identification cards, vehicle registration and title, and disabled person parking placards. In addition, fire survivors can acquire substitute license plates and stickers, vehicle disposal paperwork, driver record printouts and process a change of address.

These services also are available at local DMV field offices.
