Unalaska’s DMV reopened this week after almost two months.

The Division of Motor Vehicles closed when its only agent went on personal leave.

Now, Acting Director Jennifer Shockley said the Department of Public Safety has trained another staff member.

"We'll be able to do IDs, vehicle registrations, and Class D drivers licenses — both written testing and road testing," she said. 

For the time being, the DMV won’t offer road tests for motorcyclists or drivers of commercial vehicles, because the new agent hasn’t received that training yet.

Shockley also said the office will only be open three days a week: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

"The schedule may change a little from one week to the next, depending on some of our other staffing needs," she said. "We don’t have the staff to devote one person entirely to the DMV right now."

Unalaskans can check the schedule and find more information by calling the DMV at 581-2833 or stopping by the Department of Public Safety.
