Motor Vehicle Division Offices are open by appointment only
New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division offices are open on an appointment-only basis and only for transactions that cannot be completed on line.
On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, customers 79 and over can take advantage of special senior hours without an appointment from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. in larger offices (a listing of senior- hour locations is available at mvdonline.com).
New Mexicans are strongly encouraged to continue using MVD’s online services at https://eservices.mvd.newmexico.gov/eTapestry/_/ to renew driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations and take care of many other transactions from the safety of their homes.
Examples of transactions that cannot be completed online include license renewals for people 79 years of age and older, first-time Real ID licenses, first-time New Mexico licenses of any kind, title transfers, and VIN inspections.
Customers can schedule appointments at mvdonline.com or at 888-683-4636.
Employees and customers are required to wear face coverings and follow other COVID-safe practices.
MVD offices closed March 26 because of the public health threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
On March 30, Governor Lujan Grisham issued an Executive Order temporarily waiving MVD fees and penalties for expired registrations and licenses and directing State Police not to issue citations to New Mexicans whose documents expired during the pandemic.
