DMV to Nevadans: Stay Away Monday

DMV to Nevadans: Stay Away Monday

 

If you have a November deadline for business at the DMV, department officials don’t want to see you Monday.

Department officials are asking motorists to use alternative services this coming Monday or to delay visiting an office until later in the week.

“Happy holidays from our family to yours,” DMV Director Bruce Breslow said. “Enjoy your time more by staying away from the DMV on Monday.”

The Monday after Thanksgiving is traditionally the department’s busiest day of the year, leading some of the staff to call it “Black Monday.”  Wait times can easily double or triple, to two hours or longer. Motorists can always check current wait times on the department’s website or iPhone application.
