LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Louisiana residents are advised to use the official Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles website to see if their local OMV is open.
EXPRESSLANE.org shows residents which OMV locations have opened up to the public and which ones are still closed. It also shows whether those locations require an appointment or are open for walk-ins.
OMV Public Information Director, Matthew Boudreaux, reminds residents that some services required can be done online, through LA wallet, or over the phone.
According to Boudreaux, their website provides the fastest updates on the opening of locations.
Customers seeking reinstatements are reminded to check their driver license status online at www.EXPRESSLANE.org. If a customer has flags on their record, they must clear those flags before obtaining any OMV services. Customers cannot clear blocks or flags inside an OMV at this time. Reinstatements will ONLY be provided via phone, mail, or a Public Tag Agency utilizing one of the following options:
- OMV Call Center: 225-925-6146 – Option No. 3
- OMV Mail Center: P.O. Box 64886 Baton Rouge, La. 70896
- Contact your local PTA to ensure they can provide the reinstatement service you need.
