Drivers around the Connecticut River Valley will have a new office to visit when it comes to renewing licenses and other DMV matters according to a press release issued by the New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles.
Friday marked the last day of operations at the Claremont DMV located on Water Street, setting the stages for the grand opening of a new DMV office on Monday located at 20 North Main Street in downtown Newport. The new location will feature a larger lobby, more customer parking and offer on-site motorcycle testing. DMV Director Elizabeth Bielecki said in a press release that her department “anticipates its customers will find (the new location) both convenient and efficient while they complete their DMV business.”
Hours of operation will remain the same at the Newport office, which will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Newport office is the only office in the immediate area, with the next closest located in Concord or Keene.
