gon Department of Motor Vehicles Headquarters and all local DMV field offices will be closed Friday, Aug. 17.
The closure is the fifth of 10 statewide mandatory unpaid "furlough" days for state employees scheduled for the 2011-13 budget period.
Customer waiting times tend to be longer on the days just before and after office closures, so DMV suggests that customers try to do business by mail or online, if possible, or plan their visits to DMV before Thursday, Aug. 16, or after Monday, Aug. 20.
People also can do some business with DMV online any time. Online DMV services include most passenger vehicle registration renewals, changes of address, and notice of vehicle sale. To access DMV's online services go to www.OregonDMV.com/online.
