As planned, officials broke ground Wednesday on a new Department of Motor Vehicles for Reno. One detail was kept as a surprise: The facility will have a “Drive Up Express” DMV kiosk. That means some customers won’t even need to park and go inside. It will be the first of its kind in the country, according to an announcement from the DMV.
The building is going up at the intersection of Double Diamond Parkway and Sandhill Road in South Reno. When it opens in 2020, the old DMV on Galletti Way will close, along with the Greg Street location that handles commercial drivers’ licenses.
In 1979, when the current DMV opened, the population of Washoe County was 187,000. Now, it’s 446,000, said Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval at the groundbreaking.
