SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is extending hours at some locations and urging drivers to use online services if possible after lobby closures created extremely long lines at drive-through locations.

Drivers at the South Valley DMV in Draper reported waiting in line for up to eight and a half hours Friday. The line of cars snaked through the parking lot, out on to Minuteman Drive, and down to 14600 S.

The DMV announced Saturday that all locations' lobbies would be closing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and only drive-through service would be available at the Salt Lake, South Valley, Farmington, Ogden and Hurricane locations.

However, after seeing extremely long lines this week, the division announced Friday that it will extend its hours at four of the drive-through locations, including opening on Saturdays.

The new hours are Salt Lake, South Valley, Farmington and Ogden drive-through service are Monday-Friday from 6 a.m. - 8 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. They are still closed on Sundays. The Hurricane office does not have extended hours.

In addition, the division advises Utahns that most DMV services can be done online.
