If a transaction can be done online or over the phone, customers must use that option or wait to visit the DMV at a later date. DMV is only scheduling appointments for commercial driver’s license transactions, driving privilege reinstatement transactions and the original issuance of standard driver’s licenses, identification cards and REAL IDs.
