DMV offices in Astoria and Woodburn will stop accepting appointments for motorcycle skills tests by the end of May. Motorcycle skills test appointments are still available at several other DMV offices through this year, and skills testing is also available from TEAM Oregon (www.team-oregon.org).
In fact, Oregon is near the end of a five-year transition of all motorcycle skills testing to TEAM Oregon, which also provides the Basic Rider Training course required for a motorcycle endorsement to an Oregon driver license. For details on obtaining a motorcycle endorsement, visitwww.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV/pages/driverid/motorcycle_endorse.
As a reminder, the Astoria DMV office is closed the week of May 20 for repairs and updates to the interior. Also, all DMV offices, including headquarters, will be closed on Friday, May 24, for a statewide furlough and Monday, May 27, for Memorial Day.
Customer wait times tend to be longer on the days just before and just after weekends and other closures. DMV suggests that people who need to do business at DMV try to visit the office Before May 23 or after May 28.
DMV also suggests that you first check www.OregonDMV.com before visiting a field office in person. Customers can complete some DMV business online or find out how to make their visit as efficient as possible.
