Public Roundtable on DMV Appointment Backlog
"On Monday, October 5, 2020, Councilmember Mary M. Cheh, Chairperson of the Committee on Transportation and the Environment, will hold a public roundtable on the District Department of Motor Vehicle’s appointment backlog. The roundtable will begin at 12:00 PM and will be broadcast live on DC Council Channel 13 and streamed live at www.dccouncil.us and entertainment.dc.gov".
"The purpose of the roundtable is for the Committee to learn about how the DMV plans to handle the severe appointment backlog it currently faces due to the limited in-person transactions that can occur at DMV service centers during the Public Health Emergency. Residents have reported in recent weeks that appointments at DMV service centers are currently not available until February 2021. Although this backlog is not a problem for some residents whose credentials are covered by the DMV’s order extending expiration dates until 45 days after the conclusion of the Public Health Emergency, for other residents whose required transactions are not covered by the DMV’s order, this backlog creates significant hardships".
"If you are unable to testify at the public roundtable, written statements are encouraged and will be made a part of the official record; testimony may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. The public may also leave voicemail testimony for the Committee by calling (202) 350-1344, which will be transcribed and made part of the roundtable record. Members of the public leaving voicemail testimony should speak slowly and clearly, state their full name and the organization they represent, if any, and note the bill, roundtable, or agency that they are submitting testimony on. Members of the public are asked to not provide an e-mail, phone number, or other person contact information in voicemail testimony".
The record will close at the end of the business day on October 19, 2020.
