The Oceanside DMV is temporarily closing for renovation Oct 20 - Dec 22


The Oceanside DMV is temporarily closing its office at 4005 Plaza Drive for renovation as part of a larger renovation project. These improvements will not impact the driving public as we will have temporary office space to accommodate the needs of everyone who visit us. Starting 5 p.m. Their license office will be closed on Thursday, October 20, 2022, until 8 a.m. Thursday, December 22, 2022. During this period, customers can visit the following area offices:

Driver's license and vehicle registration renewals can be completed online. You can also pay fees or fines, order personalized and unique license plates, complete driver record transactions, check the status of your application, or get a driving record.
