The Bureau of Motor Vehicles will soon reopen to walk-in customers at its branches statewide.

It will do so June 15, as the state is set to enter the next phase of its reopening plan.

The BMV first reopened to in-person business in May. But it was restricted to appointment only.

Now, the agency will allow walk-in customers at its branches, most of which are open Tuesday through Saturday. It will still limit the number of people inside at one time, marking positions outside where people can wait in line.

BMV employees that deal with the public will still be required to wear masks. And the state encourages all in-person customers to do so as well.

The agency still isn’t offering driving skills tests, however. It says it’s finalizing a timeline for when it will resume those exams.
