Senators Leone and Kasser Announce the Reopening of the Stamford DMV

STAMFORD, CT – Today, Senator Carlo Leone (D-Stamford), Chair of the Transportation Committee, and Senator Alex Kasser (D-Greenwich), Vice Chair of the Transportation Committee, announced that the Stamford DMV will resume services Friday, July 31.

As of tomorrow, the Stamford DMV will accept up to 150 online requests per day. On Tuesday, August 4, the physical location, located at 137 Henry Street, will open and additional services will be available by appointment.

“I am pleased the Stamford DMV branch office will be allowed to reopen and even expand service capabilities,” said Senator Leone. “The Stamford office was temporarily shut down due to the pandemic crisis, but the local vendor was unable to continue services creating the risk of imminent shutdown. However, our local delegation and the partnership with DMV allowed for a seamless transition to re-open the facility. I thank DMV and their leadership for their immediate responsiveness to the concerns raised, and their commitment in servicing our community.”

“When we reached out and asked DMV to make services available in Stamford, they listened,” said Senator Alex Kasser. “I’m grateful to be part of a team that works together to serve the residents of Stamford. And I’m glad to see our state government adapting to new conditions and responding to the community’s needs. This is what good government looks like!”

“The Department of Motor Vehicles has experienced a series of challenges this year as a direct result of the COVID-19 global health pandemic, reinforcing the importance of agility,” said DMV Deputy Commissioner Tony Guerrera. “In addition to improving how customers are served, we’ve recently had to develop a plan to reopen our Stamford DMV Express office after receiving notice that The WorkPlace would be unable to continue operations. Our dedicated team swiftly developed a plan to reopen the Stamford location. Today, I am proud to announce that our DMV Express Office, located in Stamford, will reopen by appointment on Tuesday, August 4th. Appointments are now available. Our employees did an excellent job reopening the Stamford office.”
