(AP) — The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is warning people to do services online if possible. The agency told KOLO-TV in Reno the Monday after the Thanksgiving weekend is its busiest day of the year.
Spokesman Sean Sever said the DMV already has a backlog of appointments going back three months.
They are hoping to discourage possible COVID-19 exposure brought by long lines. Sever says the agency wants to keep both staff and customers safe.
The Nevada DMV currently runs at 50% capacity with service available by appointment only.
Services that can be done online include driver’s license and ID card renewals. Customers can also try drive-thru kiosk and AAA offices.
