The state’s Automobile Department has relocated its regional office from Huntington to Dix Hills since Monday, officials wrote in a Friday news release.
According to the release, the office has moved from New York Avenue 813 to East Jericho Tpke 1815, next to Retro Fitness.
According to the release, the new location is “along the main roads and easily accessible to residents of the entire county.”
Friday was the last day of service for the old site and the new location opened on Monday.
“Like all state-owned DMV offices, face-to-face services are provided only by booking. Customers can book online,” dmv.ny.gov said in the release. According to the DMV, if it expires between March 1st and December 31st, 2020, you can perform many DMV transactions online, such as registering, changing your address, renewing your license, etc. .. website..
The location of Dix Hills includes the Learner Permit Examination Room to enable customers to take permit exams in the field.
A booking policy came into force in mid-March, after which a pandemic struck New York and the government tried to stop the spread of the virus, ordering DMV offices throughout New York to be closed.
The DMV office in Long Island was reopened until the summer, with extended license and non-driver ID expiration dates.
The agency has already been overwhelmed since late 2019, when the state began allowing states to illegally apply for driver’s licenses under the so-called “Greenlight Act” for immigrants living in the United States. For the weeks leading up to 2020, lines were meandering on the exterior walls of DMV offices.
