DeQuincy OMV Office Returns to Full time Operations

The following is a News Release from OMV Headquarters:

Louisiana Motor Vehicle Commissioner Nick Gautreaux announced today that effective September 22, 2011, the Office of Motor Vehicles field office located at 101 South Pine Street in DeQuincy will return to a regular business schedule and remain open five days a week, except for state holidays. 

The office reduced hours to a three-day schedule following last year's untimely death of the office manager.

"I want to thank Mayor Henagan and the DeQuincy City Council for their support of the Office of Motor Vehicles," Gautreaux said. "We are pleased to restore services in this area at a time when other agencies are having to either reduce or eliminate services to Louisiana's citizens.  The restoration of the DeQuincy Office of Motor Vehicles operations to its full five-day work week stands as an example that the agency is working hard with the resources at hand to continue providing Louisiana's citizens with the best customer service possible.  Our goal is to continue to streamline processes, expedite services, and keep our offices open for the people of Louisiana."

The Office of Motor Vehicles reminds the public that some OMV services are available online at our Website: www.expresslane.org

In many cases, this includes renewal of driver's licenses and vehicle registrations.

"The Department of Public Safety will continue to make customer service a priority," said Colonel Mike Edmonson, Deputy Secretary – Department of Public Safety.  "I want to commend the employees of the DeQuincy field office for working to overcome a tragic loss and restore services to the community."
