Best Times to Visit a FLHSMV Office
If you can’t make a Florida DMV appointment or complete your task online, you can still save time by timing your visit when it is least crowded.
As a general rule, the:
- Middle of the week is less crowded than Mondays and Fridays.
- Lunch hours are the busiest, since that is when many employees take their breaks.
- Days before or after holidays are especially crowded.
- DMV will not issue tests past a certain point in the evening -- get there early to ensure you can complete your transaction before the office closes.
Before you visit a FLHSMV office, be sure to verify that the location is capable of processing your request. There are 3 types of offices:
- Driver License (DL) services only centers, which handle requests such as processing ID cards, issuing knowledge and driving skills tests, etc.
- Motor Vehicle (MV) services only centers, which handle requests like vehicle registration and titling, disability parking placards, license plates, etc.
- Dual service centers, which can perform all DMV-related tasks.
