Close most of the local offices at the same time! Typical DMV./California government. Does not make sense to close Concord and Pittsburg offices at the same time. Notice in the press release they do not even mention Walnut Creek as open? Is it closed also?!!!!

I was at Walnut Creek on Monday. The line was around the building, luckily I had an appointment. I tried making an appointment online for Pittsburg, Tracy, and Concord but there were none available. Note, if you have an appointment you don’t have to wait in the long line that goes around the building, just go in to the appointment line. The clerk told me the reason for the backup was because Concord and Pittsburg were closed.

I heard that the Concord office was closed as well for repairs. A couple of months ago I drove to the WC DMV and it was a piece of cake without an appt. Walked in and was helped in less than 5 minutes and out of there in less than an hour with a vehicle inspection and registration. That is just plain STUPID to close all these main offices in the local area at once. Who the hell was the brains on that?

For years we have been going to the Walnut Creek office. They are fast and very nice. Except now they are busy because all the others are closed. Fools.

Pittsburg DMV is the rudest slowest DMV I have ever been to. Remodel the employees while you are at it Cal. They are rude people.

Chuck PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that the Pittsburg Dmv helps between 750-950 customers A DAY!! There are 13 windows & 13 TECHNICIANS… If the people you stand in line with OR are sitting next to 1) knew what they were there to do, 2) had their forms filled out BEFORE getting to the window 3)DID THEIR BANKING & HAD THEIR $ READY when being helped INSTEAD of telling the tech “wait I gotta transfer $ from my savings to my checking account” 4) Did what they were SUPPOSED to do WHEN they were SUPPOSED to do it or **DID NOT DO what they WERE NOT supposed to do WHEN they did it, YOU & them too WOULD NOT BE POSTING COMMENTS HERE ABOUT THE HARD WORKING DEDICATED EMPLOYEES such as MYSELF who by the way ARE THERE TO HELP YOU but most of the time FIGHT A LOSING BATTLE TRYING TO HELP YOU because of all if the above…AND YES it’s our job, we are human WE DO MAKE MISTAKES, we don’t lay in bed at night thinking of ways TO UPSET THE PUBLIC… I WOULD LIKE TO PUBLICLY THANK EACH OF MY FELLOW CO-WORKERS WHO come to work each day AND DO THE JOBS WE ALL DO… Given ALL the above I’d say WE DO A GREAT JOB working with AND DEALING WITH every POSSIBLE SCENARIO the PUBLIC THROWS OUR WAY!!!

And this comment is why I dont go to the Pittsburg DMV anymore. Thanks for making his point Kim!
The last time I did go with an appointment and had all my paperwork prepared and my check ready to go. I still waited 2 hours when I asked about my appointment I was told that did not mean I would not have to wait and if I asked again I would have to wait longer. I did file a complaint about the employee. But never again will I go back to that location. Concord, Tracey and Walnut Creek are run far better with nicer and more helpful staff.

@Chuck a few years ago I would have agreed with you. They had quite a few rude clerks retire. Now I find most of them friendly even considering a lot of the customers are flat out jerks.

Maybe I will revisit it. It has been five years or so.

This was very inconvenient, my brother and I showed up at 7 A.M. just to beat the lines, only to find a deserted building in Pittsburg. We drove home and he set up an appointment for the Tracy DMV office. When we got there for his 2:30 P.M. appointment the next day. He was allowed to bypass the line and grab a ticket and went to sit down. He waited only 7 minutes for his number to be up. Another 3 minutes to get his picture taken for his drivers license. And we were out in under 11 minutes.

Set up an appointment folks, it’s worth it.

There are a lot of things you can do online instead of making the trip. Check your notice that came in the mail for the website address and your access code. If you have to be fingerprinted, take an actual driving test, or have your photo taken, obviously, you have to go in, but a lot of the time, you could just fill out the online form and they mail the stickers or the license to you. If your car is smogged, the next day you can go online and complete the transaction to get the vehicle registration tags. (The only hitch I’ve ever encountered is that communication to the DMV from the smog certifier does take some time to update, and I understand that the same thing is true of information from the courts. They do send the information quickly, but the DMV system needs a little time to process that info.) If you’re hesitant to put your credit card number on the form, your credit card company may give you the option of using a virtual number for that transaction. Also, remember AAA can handle a lot of things if you are a member. There’s a list of available services on their site. (Nevada offices are authorized to do more, wish we had that here.)
