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.
