HELENA — The Lewis and Clark County Motor Vehicle Department will begin expanded hours on March 1 to allow for additional appointment spots.
Current hours for the Motor Vehicle Department are 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The change will increase daily operations by an hour and a half, operating from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday except for legal holidays.
The Board of County Commissioners approved the extended hours on Tuesday Feb. 16.
The County says the added hours will allow for more title appointments and extend the hours of the renewal line to shortly after 7:00 am to 5:45 pm. The renewal line is available to renew a vehicle registration, receive a Temporary Registration Permit, to process title work for one Montana vehicle purchased from an individual and to schedule an appointment.
Title appointments can be scheduled online for recently purchased vehicles here, or by calling 406-447-8328.
Vehicle registration renewals can be done entirely online, by using the drop-box at the City-County Building Motor Vehicles Department (316 N. Park Ave.) or by walk-in, no appointment necessary.
A webcam is available for people to check the size of the lines at the Motor Vehicle Department.
