Social distancing guidelines will continue to be enforced and citizens visiting our offices will still be required to wear a face covering and have their temperature taken before entering the building.
Also beginning May 15, DPS will resume all drive tests for Class D licenses as well as Commercial Driver Licenses These will be by appointment only and vehicles used for the drive test will have to be disinfected by the applicant.
