DMV Road Tests Cancelled for Friday, February 14; Extensions Given to Those with Emissions Tests Due and Expiring Licenses, Registrations, etc.

Business Hours
DMV customer business hours for the remainder of this week will only be a half-day Friday (February 14) and closed Saturday both due to the Presidents' Day (February 17) holiday schedule. DMV will re-open on its usual weekly schedule Tuesday at 7:45 a.m.

Emissions Tests Due and Expiration of Licenses, Registrations, etc.
DMV will extend due the closing of state offices Thursday (February 13) the expiration date or period of validity of registrations, licenses, permits, certificates or other forms or credentials issued by DMV.

This includes an extension of the time required to comply with emissions inspections done through emissions stations in the state. In addition to extending the validity of credentials, all late fees that normally would be associated with a late renewal will be waived during the applicable time period.

The extension will apply only to those credentials or other items that expire on or after February 13, 2014. The extension will continue until 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 22, 2014. Law enforcement personnel will be notified of the dates of implementation and termination of the extension.

Road and Knowledge Tests
Road tests for Friday have been cancelled due to expected slippery driving conditions. Anyone with a scheduled road test that was cancelled for either Thursday or Friday can call DMV Friday afternoon to choose a new date. The numbers to call are 860-263-5700 if someone is within the Hartford area and toll-free 800-842-8222 for those outside the Hartford area. DMV will also attempting to contact customers with road test appointments to advise them of the schedule change.

Anyone with a hearing that has been postponed due to a weather closure should call 860-263-5204 to reschedule.

Remember to Remove Snow and Ice from Vehicles
Drivers of commercial and passenger vehicles are reminded about the requirement to remove snow and ice from hoods, trunks and roofs or face fines ranging from $75 to $1,250. Operators of commercial vehicles and passenger cars and trucks who drive a vehicle with accumulated snow and ice can be fined $75. However, the law calls for stiffer penalties when there’s personal or property damage from the flying elements.

In those instances the driver of a commercial vehicle faces a fine up to $1,250 and a passenger car or small truck driver can be fined up to $1,000. Drivers are exempt from the fines when the snow, sleet and freezing rain begins or continues while the vehicle is traveling. Parked vehicles are also exempt from the required removal of ice and snow.
