Steer clear of crowded DMV offices today, agency chief suggests

For employees at the Department of Motor Vehicles, it isn’t the day after Thanksgiving that brings a rush of customers, it’s the Monday after.

Some staff members call the day “Black Monday,” and it’s traditionally the department’s busiest day of the year, according to a statement from the DMV.

“Happy holidays from our family to yours,” said DMV Director Bruce Breslow in the statement. “Enjoy your time more by staying away from the DMV on Monday.”

Officials said wait times at DMV offices today could easily be double or triple that of a normal day.

If Nevada residents have DMV-related business that needs to be done today, officials suggest doing as much as possible online, at a DMV kiosk or my mail.

The DMV’s website has more information on these services as well as office wait times.
